IMPROVE Federal law for Veterans Perference

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Veterans preference was created to allow qualified veterans the ability to gain positions in the federal government after service to their country. I recommend revision of this law so that current veteran federal employees be granted the ability to apply INTERNALLY for positions, Not just EXTERNALLY. There are countless veterans passed over for positions they are more than qualified for but are not allowed to apply for (Especially in VETERANS AFFAIRS!)

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
