The Veteran Employment Services Office (VESO) is looking for undergraduate and graduate students who want to help ensure that disabled Veterans have the same access to employment information as those who are not disabled. In particular, this internship will involve the remediation of documents that are currently posted on the VAforVets website, or any documents that are submitted in the future for posting on the website.
Many of our nation’s Veterans come home with disabilities. This internship position will give you the opportunity to ensure that those disabled Veterans will have the same opportunity to apply for federal employment as everyone else. Individuals with sight or hearing disabilities require special software to access web and digital media content. Your work will ensure that the content on the VAforVets website and throughout the Veteran Employment Services Office is formatted in a way that it is accessible to Veterans with disabilities.
