Muskegon County recognizes the sacrifices made by our military service members and is proud to provide a Veteran's hiring preference for all honorably discharged Veterans of the United States military. Muskegon County will waive minimum college and/or experience requirements associated with individual positions in lieu of comparable military education, training, and service. In addition, all things being equal, Veterans will be offered employment over those without military service.
To receive the Muskegon County Veteran's hiring preference, applicants must submit a DD Form 214 or reserve discharge order. Active National Guard and Reserve soldiers may submit a letter from their unit commander stating the service member's military occupational specialty, end of service date, and verification that the service member is in good standing.
