Veterans Preference in Federal Civil Service
(Feds Hire Vets) The Federal Government has a long and outstanding record of employing veterans. Veterans hold a far higher percentage of jobs in the Government than they do in private industry. In large part, this is due to laws providing Veterans' preference and special appointing authorities for veterans, as well as the fact that agencies recognize that hiring veterans is just good business.
