Veteran Employment

INVESTVets

The LCC Office of Veteran Affairs is partnered with the Lansing Area Veterans Coalition Employment Group. Director Cosgrove serves on the Steering Committee for INVESTVets, a product of the LAVC Employment Group.

INVESTVets is a veteran networking group that helps bring employers, service organizations, and veterans together in one place. These meetings occur twice per month and last approx. 1 hour. Further details are listed below.

This is a great opportunity for veterans to meet other veterans, along with being able to see what employers are out there who are willing to hire veterans and give specific preference to veterans during the hiring process. It also provides an opportunity for veterans to connect with veteran service organizations, which can help improve day-to-day life for many vets and family members.

Our office encourages anyone who is interested to attend INVESTVets events. It is a wonderful opportunity and doesn't cost anything to attend. Spouses and dependents of active military and/or veterans are also welcome to attend each event!

There are over 100 employers waiting to present at these events so each INVESTVets session will feature a different employer along with different service providers. Here are the details:

Date: 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of each month
Time: 3:30 – 4:30 PM
Location: Capital Area Michigan Works! (2110 S Cedar St, Lansing, MI)
