Veterans and Military Spouses Program

veterans and military spouses title banner

We recognize the hardships military service places on both the service member and their spouse. We want to provide opportunities to both current military spouses and spouses of retired/separated military members alike. We understand that military spouses often have tremendous skills and abilities which are hard to translate each time you move duty locations and often have a lot of unrelated experiences. 

We look at your job history, education and career objectives to design an internship suitable for you. As a military friendly employer, we welcome the diversity you bring to our organization. This program allows our nation's heroes -like you- an opportunity for meaningful work experience and a job which is aligned with your long-term career objectives.

If you would like to intern with Nevada County you can start here:
