The City of Hiawatha Proudly Supports the Home Base Iowa Program
To help veterans transition after completing their honorable service to our country, HBI connects veterans with resources such as Iowa employers, Hiawatha companies that are hiring, and educational options.
To help match them with job opportunities, veterans can create a profile with their contact information, job history including military history, and preferred industry. Once the profile is published, employers who have similar preferences of location and industry will be notified of the veteran’s profile.
In addition, HBI has over 2,100 partners who can access all the veteran’s profiles and filter their searches match veterans’ skills with open positions. Watch the video below to see how employers can find their next employee.
Employers aren’t the only ones who can search for who they are looking for; veterans can also look for companies. According to HBI, around 200,000 military members exit the military every year, and all of them have the option to go to college and possess their individual skills to add to the workforce.
If veterans are interested in attending college, HBI has connections to help ease the transition to soldier to student. Iowa colleges who are classified as Certified Higher Academic Military Partners (CHAMPs) will provide on-campus veteran resources, military transitional considerations and financial considerations. See HBI’s map to easily find colleges in your location.
