Virtual Employment Services for Veterans, Caregivers and Military Spouses from PVA

PAVE is open to all Veterans, their spouses and caregivers


Paralyzed Veterans of America’s employment program, Paving Access for Veterans Employment (PAVE), has helped more than 4,100 Veterans, military spouses and caregivers find meaningful work. PAVE provides free employment support and vocational counseling assistance to ALL Veterans, transitioning service members, spouses and caregivers.

In February, PAVE started a new virtual resource – PAVE Connect – to reach Veterans and their families when and where they need it most.

What is the resource?

PAVE Connect is an online resource for Veterans and their families to access relevant career information, 24/7, from any device. PAVE Connect also offers small group sessions and virtual engagements with the latest career information and opportunities. These presentations also focus on question and answer sessions as well as group discussions.

PAVE Connect sessions are hosted by PAVE staff and employment experts to cover topics such as: resume building, interview skills, LinkedIn profile tactics, crafting job search strategies, and identifying network opportunities in the desired community. Some sessions may also be hosted directly by employers and PAVE network partners.

Who is eligible?

Paralyzed Veterans of American is offering this resource to ALL Veterans, transitioning service members, spouses, and caregivers.

What to expect after registering for PAVE Connect?

After registering, a Zoom with a session link will be sent with a follow up email from a PAVE team member.

Important note: PAVE’s support does not end at employment. PAVE is committed to being a partner for life and will continue to support career development as needed.

    I would like to be able to connect with Tim Hudak. I am a disabled vet, and have invented several products that have went
    world wide, both for horses and animals of all kinds. I have instructed all nine of the US Army Cavalry Horse Detachments
    and the troops at Arlington National Cemetery with a write up in the Pentagon News Paper and the 1st Cav. Horse Detachment in Ft. Hood, Tx. My products have been endorsed by the leading Trainers, Professionals and Veterinarians on a worldwide scale.

    Kind Regards,

    Im a veteran who has a disability on his back,at 40% percent. I just recently lost my job due to the pandemic,which I had for 14 years. Im 61 years old,so with that being said and my back issue,no one is interested in hiring such an individual. Would PAVE be able to help me find employment,I can perform out of my home?
