Want to become a VA Ready business or strategic partner?
Join VA Ready as a Founding Partner, Strategic Partner or Business Partner to have access to a talented pool of qualified individuals, the opportunity to shape training content for your in-demand roles, and build relationships across the Commonwealth.
Employer engagement is the backbone of VA Ready and a key to the success of our mission to place thousands of motivated, unemployed Virginians in high-demand jobs over the next two years. Employers across Virginia in the high-growth industries of computer and cyber, healthcare and skilled trades expect annual demand for at least 6,000 to 8,000 new jobs that can be filled by VA Ready scholars.
With talent development at the core of their workforce strategies, business partners contribute financially, actively participate on the Talent Task Force to dynamically evolve curricula, engage their workforce in our future student mentoring program, and participate in the VA Ready Job Exchange and offer VA Ready Scholars options of interview opportunities when available.
