Missouri State Parks Seeks To Recruit And Hire More Veterans
The Missouri State Parks system is seeking to recruit and hire more veterans, which it is hailing as a “significant step forward” by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
Gov. Eric Greitens announced the effort during a visit to a job fair at Ft. Leonard Wood.
“Our veterans’ proven dedication to service makes them uniquely qualified to protect our public resources in Missouri State Parks,” Greitens said. “We’re grateful for their sacrifices and proud that this new initiative will help give opportunities to those who have sacrificed for us. It’s the right thing to do.”
Missouri State Parks has launched a website especially for veterans, which includes a list of positions, details on the application process and an overview of benefits. It can be accessed at mostateparks.com/veteran-recruitment-program.
Missouri DNR Director Carol S. Comer said recruiting and hiring veterans is one of DNR’s top priorities.
“What sets them apart and makes them truly unique in today’s workforce is their well-proven dedication and commitment to what they believe in. We recognize that those character traits, combined with unparalleled training, knowledge and skills, are critical to our department reaching its full potential. That’s why hiring veterans is so important to us.”
