Veterans add a tremendous value to Northern Light Health. Veterans possess important leadership skills such as experience managing projects, supervising staff, and adapting effectively to change. We encourage our veterans and their families to apply as we have a variety of openings throughout the state.
Northern Light Health is working with the Maine Department of Labor, veteran representatives, and local universities and colleges to develop programs to help our veterans and active duty service members translate their military experience into civilian education and positions. We participate monthly in the job fairs at the Career Centers throughout Maine and all career events scheduled for veterans. Northern Light Health is also a member of the U.S. Army's Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program.
Northern Light Health's talent recruiters have all attended “military 101” training to help navigate military culture. This training provides our recruiters with an understanding of the different branches, rank, military structure components, pay structure, and defined “Veteran Status.” We also offer workshops to all hiring managers to develop their interviewing techniques, which also focuses on a veteran component and helps them translate military experience to the healthcare field.
