Dow values and supports veterans, from their commitment to the service to the skills they bring to the workforce. We help create career opportunities at Dow that align with various disciplines.
From mentorships that help veterans adjust to Dow workplace culture to initiatives that foster inclusion and diversity, our engagement programs honoring men and women who risk their lives to serve in the military.
We established VETNET to acknowledge the virtues of U.S. military service and advance the recruitment, personal development, and mentorship of service members and veterans. For more information, please let us know.
When it comes to jobs for military veterans, Dow offers military leave for up to five years to employees who serve in the U.S. In most cases, there is continuation of compensation and benefits from Dow.
Nearly 3.5 million veterans qualify for jobs that require an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree based on their relevant military experience. Veteran hiring has proven to strengthen our talent pool and further our success.
Dow offers two possibilities for degree equivalencies through the Military Degree Equivalency (MDE) Program when the job posting lists military degree equivalency in lieu of an associate’s or bachelor’s degree:
Associate’s Degree Equivalence:
Veterans with three or more years of relevant military experience would be considered to have an Associate’s degree equivalent for certain roles requiring that degree. This program has been in place since 2016.
Bachelor’s Degree Equivalence:
Veterans with relevant military experience at or above a U.S. E6 ranking or Canadian Petty Officer 2nd Class or Sergeant (PO2/Sgt) Military ranking would be considered to have a Bachelor’s degree equivalent for certain roles requiring that degree.
