The Indiana National Guard’s Indiana Employment Team works to assist service members, veterans and their dependents with all phases of a job search. If you are currently unemployed, underemployed or looking for a new career, the Indiana Employment Team is here to help you begin the process of finding meaningful employment.
What We Do
We work directly with job seekers to:
- Identify your skills and interests
- Create your resume
- Research job opportunities
- Utilize your network
- Prepare for interviews
We also follow up with job seekers and employers. Our meetings with employers help us develop positive long-term relationships that benefit job seekers. These interactions also help us identify skill sets that employers are looking for, so that we can better identify applicants to match an employer’s needs.
The Indiana Employment Team has working relationships with approximately 20 major companies across the state, from Merrillville, Elkhart, Warsaw and Fort Wayne to Indianapolis, Carmel and Columbus to Brazil, Princeton and Evansville.
Our cooperative relationship with the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs (IDVA) allows us to share job leads and to ensure that all veterans who contact us regarding their state benefits are promptly and effectively served.
