Veterans Employment Committee San Mateo

The Veterans Employment Committee San Mateo (VECSM) is comprised of volunteers from the local Veteran Service Organizations within San Mateo county and is partnered with the state of California Employment Development Department EDD Vet Rep staff.  Our primary purpose is to present employment and training information available for veterans within the San Francisco Bay Area.  Our chairman of the VECSM is Jarom Vahai.

We continue this outreach through the production of the “Veterans Helping Veterans” TV series. The VEC San Mateo (VECSM) is the production company for this series. In our third year of sponsorship from the AMVETS CA Service Foundation, we present stories that encourage volunteering for veterans.


Johnny Stanton and Bruce Good Child, both EDD Vet Reps hold monthly Mini Job Fair here at the San Francisco Facility that is open to all job seekers, but the focus is on Veterans: This is a monthly event (no cost to employers that are registered in our CalJOBS system) that we have scheduled from 10am to 12 noon. We typically have 5-6 employers set up in the same room where each employer talks about their available jobs, the application process and what it takes to be successful in that career. Some of the employers do interviews and accept applications on the spot. Additionally, we have on hand a professional from the Experience Unlimited Job Club who does resume reviews/critiques at no cost for our Veterans. Makini Harvey, a Career Coach and Certified Professional Resume Writer from San Mateo also assists us in that effort.
