Veterans Employment Opportunities Act (VEOA) of 1998
The VEOA provides preference eligibles and certain eligible veterans the opportunity to compete for certain positions announced under an agency’s merit promotion procedures. It applies only when the agency is filling a permanent, competitive service position and has decided to solicit candidates from outside its own workforce. VEOA allows eligible veterans and preference eligibles to apply to announcements that would otherwise be open to “status” candidates.
How to Apply
To be eligible to be considered, your latest discharge must be issued under honorable conditions (honorable or general discharge), AND you must be either:
- A preference eligible (defined in title 5 U.S.C. 2108(3)), OR
- A veteran who substantially completed 3 or more years of active service under honorable conditions.
