PestVets, the veterans group established by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) in March 2015 to actively promote the recruitment of veterans to the pest management industry, has generated 753 employment opportunities across the country through its “We Hire Heroes” campaign.
“The response that we’ve received to our ‘We Hire Heroes’ campaign, which focuses on providing job opportunities to returning and retired veterans, has been extraordinary,” says NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf. “NPMA members have embraced the initiative, and as a result have posted over 750 job opportunities on NPMA’s Career Center. We are so appreciative of this overt display of support for our veteran community.”
PestVets has four key focus areas:
- Create awareness among veterans of career opportunities in the pest management industry.
- Provide transition assistance.
- Seek educational opportunities.
- Create hiring opportunities for NPMA members.
