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 do so.
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
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 can
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
