Recorded Webinar: Veterans in Water: Continue Serving Your Community

Career Stories, Veterans in Water

California’s water utilities are hiring now. They’ll hire thousands of highly-skilled professionals for water jobs this year. Your skills as a veteran could be exactly what water utilities are looking for. Dive into the California water profession. We can show you how.

This one hour webinar features four veterans who work on the frontlines of California water. We’re also celebrating these amazing water professionals and California water workers during Water Professionals Week, October 3-11.

How do you get started on a career in water/wastewater? Is there synergy between the military and water sector? What is the municipal/civil service hiring process like? What resources should the water sector build to make transitioning easier for veterans?
