He/She will establish a databank of all employment positions available by contacting several organizations, setting up rapports, and linking oneself to gainfully assist veterans in their quest for employment under specified training received.

The DEO will oversee all volunteers and canvassers.

Requirements: 8-10 years experience with previous background knowledge of employment and outreach venues. The ability to match talent, skill set and education with the appropriate job for veterans. A minimum of a BA with contacts in various employment industries a plus.
