PAVE CONNECT 

Our new virtual engagement initiative, PAVE Connect, bridges a critical gap by reaching veterans who do not have the time, means, or ability to attend traditional employment or educational events.

With PAVE Connect, you can access timely, relevant career information — on your schedule and from any device.

Register for an upcoming live session with a PAVE employment expert, or browse recorded presentations on a range of career topics.

PAVE Connect is an initiative from PVA's veterans employment program, PAVE.
