In January 2010, Governor Nixon launched the ‘Show-Me Heroes’ initiative
to help Missouri’s Veterans and members of the National Guard & Reserve reconnect
with meaningful careers, and to showcase Missouri employers who have pledged to
As Missourians, we all acknowledge the great burdens and sacrifice our Armed Forces
and their families have made in order to preserve our national security. We also
recognize how Veterans and members of our National Guard and Reserve possess the
degree of training, education, motivation, and character that will prove vital to
Missouri’s economic future.
In addition to the resources, tools, and links to aid in the job search, this website
lists the names of every employer who has pledged their support to the Show-Me Heroes
program. By clicking on the Missouri map below, members of Missouri’s military community
see the employers in their region who have taken the pledge. In
addition, using jobs.mo.gov will allow Veterans to post
their resume and employers to connect with Veterans looking for a job.
While employers aren’t required to have job vacancies to participate, Governor Nixon
is calling on all Missouri employers to
take the pledge
to consider hiring a Missouri Veteran if they’ve got a job opening. Sign up today
and become a hero by hiring a hero!
“I want every employer in this state, every technical school, every community college,
every university… every city and county, every state department with a job opening,
to sign this pledge and show that Missouri Hires its Veterans! “ – Gov. Jay Nixon
