Operation Hire Maryland,  an initiative to provide employers with veteran recruitment and retention resources, was launched in 2015. Through the collaboration and efforts of Operation Hire Maryland participants, a network was established to share best practices and proven methods for veteran recruitment, hiring, on boarding, and retention in the civilian work place.  During the course of 2015-2016 training and networking events were held across the State.  Please see archived meeting slide decks below for resource information.
