NPMA PestVets “We Hire Heroes” Campaign Generates Over 750 Jobs for Veterans

August 30, 2016 (Fairfax, VA) – PestVets, the veterans group established by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) in early 2015 to actively promote the recruitment of veterans to the pest management industry, has generated 753 employment opportunities across the country through its “We Hire Heroes” campaign.

“The response that we’ve received to our ‘We Hire Heroes’ campaign, which focuses on providing job opportunities to returning and retired veterans, has been extraordinary,” said NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf. “NPMA members have embraced the initiative and – as a result – have posted over 750 job opportunities on NPMA’s Career Center. We are so appreciative of this overt display of support for our veteran community.”

NPMA members are invited to submit positions openings specifically targeting veterans to Janay Rickwalder at jrickwalder@pestworld.org. These positions will be posted to NPMA’s Career Center and made available to veterans through a myriad of channels, to include state VA offices, veterans associations, and through members of PestVets.

PestVets is sponsored by FMC and the “We Hire Heroes” campaign is made available through their support.

The National Pest Management Association, a non-profit organization with more than 7,000 members, was established in 1933 to support the pest management industry’s commitment to the protection of public health, food and property, reflected both in the continuing education of the pest control professional and the dissemination of timely information to homeowners and businesses.
