VA (Department of Veterans Affairs)

The United States has the most comprehensive system of assistance for veterans of any nation in the world. This benefits system traces its roots back to 1636, when the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony were at war with the Pequot Indians. The Pilgrims passed a law which stated that disabled soldiers would be supported by the colony. The establishment of the Veterans Administration came in 1930 when Congress authorized the President to "consolidate and coordinate Government activities affecting war veterans."

This forum also includes the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

Perhaps you are working for the VA or interested in working for the VA. Here is a forum to share your experience with the VA.

Can anyone give some insight on the Field Examiner positions at the VA?
I know the basics within the job announcement.
Trying to figure out if it’s worth the jump.
Thanks!

I applied for the job as well, looks like lots of openings. Seems like a good job if you like being on the road, interviewing people and managing multiple caseloads.

Going into the third month, I’ve haven’t heard anything either. A lot of people viewing this particular topic, however no insight.
I think I’ll write this one off too.

Received an e-mail saying that the posting was cancelled and no candidates were selected, so that's a bummer
