Veteran's Preference in Job Applications

The State of Maine is an employer that is interested in employing more veterans who are qualified to perform the work of the State. Public Law 2015, Chapter 438 provides a preference for qualified veterans who apply for vacancies in classified State service by ensuring that they are offered an interview. In addition, in accordance with Executive Order 2016-002, if a veteran applies for a State job and is not ultimately hired for that job, it is the policy of the Bureau of Human Resources to provide guidance to that veteran on other State of Maine openings for which that veteran may be qualified to apply.

If you are a Veteran who has applied for a State job and were not selected, and you would like some guidance on State of Maine openings for which you may be qualified to apply, please contact the Bureau of Human Resources at (207) 624-7761 or visit our website at www.maine.gov/bhr.
