On May 8th, Omnitrans was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from the Veterans Employment Committee for the agency’s support of its annual Honor A Hero – Hire a Vet Job & Resource Fair. (HaH-HaV)
“When the organizers of the HaH-HaV asked me if VetLink could help out with transportation support for unemployed veterans, I knew right away that Omnitrans would step up,” said Veterans Specialist Osvaldo Maysonet. “Omnitrans Outreach Specialist Nicole Ramos immediately said ‘What do you need?’ That’s the goodwill spirit Omnitrans has towards our veterans.”
“Omnitrans is proud to support veterans and organizations such as the Veterans Employment Committee,” said Ramos. “Their annual job fair provides great opportunities for our former servicemen and women. Our own agency is living proof that hiring vets works –we are privileged to have 82 veterans on staff!”
Military veterans often possess the skills and training that match jobs in public transportation. Just as they served our country in a variety of ways, veterans are deployed in a variety of roles at Omnitrans, from Coach Operator to Equipment Mechanic, Department Director and more.
