Montana Employer of National Service
In his address to 300 AmeriCorps members and alumni during our annual ServeMontana Symposium in March, 2015 Governor Steve Bullock made an exciting announcement–Montana is the first state in the west (second in the nation) to become an Employer of National Service!
As an Employer of National Service, AmeriCorps and Peace Corps alumni can now indicate their service experience through a question included on all state job postings. The homepage of the Montana state career website (statecareers.mt.gov) has been updated to include language encouraging AmeriCorps and Peace Corps alumni to explore careers within state government.
We know National Service alumni are highly-qualified individuals. They bring valuable skills to the workplace such as determination, teamwork, and the will to do good for others. I encourage alumni to look at what the greatest state in the nation has to offer and to make a commitment to pursue a lifetime of service right here in Montana.
