“EM’s Richland Operations Office and Office of River Protection are committed to hiring veterans and helping the next generation of Hanford workers needed in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM),” said Lisa Bonser, workforce resource manager at the Hanford Site.
At the STEM Diversity Virtual Career Fair, recruiters connected with professionals, veterans, persons with disabilities, and college students from across the country.
“EM has long recognized STEM as a cornerstone to developing students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills,” Bonser said.
Hanford federal staff and contractors regularly participate in STEM programs and sponsor internships to nurture future scientists and possible Hanford employees.
Also this month, EM hiring officials and Hanford workforce management recruiters attended the Recruit Military Transitioning Army and Military Spouse Virtual Career Fair. The event connected recruiters with professionals, veterans, persons with disabilities, and military spouses.
Many military veterans work at Hanford. The career fair provided EM the opportunity to seek potential employees as well as show veterans how to apply their skills and military experience to the needs of EM and Hanford.
