Sponsorship Opportunities

"When an employer hires a service member, he or she is hiring a leader and a problem solver with a history of getting the job done. Service members have the skills to be the next generation of industry and civic leaders that will distinguish North Carolina for generations to come."

                                   - Governor Pat McCrory 

NC for Military Employment (NC4ME) is an initiative of the NC Veterans Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization

Accredited Human Resource Training

Over 6,000 human resource professionals across North Carolina are being taught how to locate, assess, and support qualified military talent during regular presentations at chapter meetings and accredited training hosted by the USO of North Carolina. 

Skills Matching Platform
NC Works Online utilizes matchmaking technology and a state-wide network of case managers to connect employers with qualified military talent based on their knowledge, skills and interests.

NC4ME Hiring Events
Hiring managers will connect with military candidates during Hiring Events held inside NC’s major military installations. In contrast to typical “job fairs”, companies will arrive ready to conduct interviews prearranged based on candidate interest and company need. 

Our Approach

Military Employment Summits

The most successful military hiring initiatives begin with a firm commitment from an employer’s senior management. NC4ME's Summits bring together senior industry, government, and military leaders to share the business case for hiring military candidates and identify proven strategies that employers can use to incorporate military hiring into their business strategy.
