Maine Hire-A-Vet Campaign 2022

THANK YOU to all for your help making our 8th Annual 2022 Maine Hire-A-Vet Campaign another success.  The Campaign ended on 23NOV22.  We are not done yet as our special “Sponsor Only” hiring event is scheduled for Thursday 01DEC22 from 1 to 4 pm.  As with all our events, all events are at no cost and open to ALL job seekers.  Employers can register with Francis “JR” Abbott at

As we are working on receiving the final outcomes, we do know that we have surpassed the 100 Veteran hire goal.  Participating employers, if you have already submitted your hiring reports, thank you.  If not, please take a few minutes to get you reports in.  It is quick and easy to report your successes at MHAV Reporting.  You can submit your reports at any time during the campaign, but we ask that all reporting be completed by December 23rd.  Please be sure to create one submission for each Veteran hire being reported.

We would also like to recognize our 2022 HIRE Vets Medallion Program recipients.  Congratulations to General Dynamics/Bath Iron Work and Dead River Company for recognition in the Large Employer Category – Gold Level and Career Systems Development Corporation – Penobscot job Corps for being recognized in the Small Employer Category – Gold Level.  This is Penobscot Job Corps third consecutive recognition.

The Campaign Committee would also like to thank Governor Janet Mills, MDOL Commissioner Laura Fortman, and Major General Douglas Farnham for their unyielding support of this worthy event.

Our success with placing Veterans in employment would not be possible without the efforts of the Planning Committee, our great Maine employers, and the generosity of our sponsors. Thank you to our Gold Sponsors, General Dynamics/Bath Iron Works and MaineGeneral Health; our Silver Sponsors, Elmet Technologies, Oakhurst Dairy, Maine Bureau of Veteran Services, and Maine Department of Corrections as well as our Bronze Sponsors, Destination Occupation, Moody’s Collision Centers, Northern Light Health, Boots 2 Roots, Reed & Reed, Sport Clips, NRF Distributors and The City of Augusta.
