The University of New Mexico recognizes the value of the skills and experience military veterans can bring to the University.
One of UNM’s immediate initiatives is to create a veteran-friendly campus. As part of this initiative, Human Resources, partnering with UNM Veteran’s Resource Center, is developing a plan to provide preference to military veteran’s applying for positions with the University.
To qualify, veteran applicants must have an honorable discharge in addition to meeting the minimum qualifications for the position and following all other application instructions. Veterans who meet these requirements will be granted an automatic interview.
Additionally, HR will provide updated information on the Employee Knowledge Base as well as updates to the application process and, coming soon, a new veteran’s preference web page.
This and more will be covered in greater detail at the HR Forums, August 7 and 9.
