Welcome, Veterans!

BCN HR Shared Services thanks you for your service. Our administrators, recruiters, and staff understand the value of hard-earned veteran experience, and we acknowledge the challenges that our veteran employees face in transitioning from a military family to a campus family. This is why we strive to recruit, assist, and welcome veterans and veterans' surviving spouses to our campus communities every day.

Matthew Berg

Grants and Contracts Specialist, School of Business, University of Nevada, Reno

“After leaving military service and graduating from college, I couldn’t tell you how happy and proud I was to find a career opportunity at the University of Nevada Reno. I was looking for an environment to work in where I could develop myself professionally and be a part of a growing and supportive team. Working for the College of Business on campus and having access to Grant-In-Aid opened the door for me to pursue a graduate degree. I’m looking forward to applying to the MBA program this fall."

Whether you're a veteran or still active in the Reserves, NSHE and its Northern Nevada campuses are proud to consider you for employment, and we strongly encourage you to apply. We offer a range of services to assist with transitioning from the military workforce to campus life.
