Does a Veteran have to live in the Lehigh Valley? Does the Company have to be located in the Lehigh Valley?

What military documentation do I have to provide?
Once you are registered and approved by the V-Portfolio Recruitment Committee, a Committee Coach will reach out to you for all the pertinent documentation. DD214-discharge papers are the most common.

How long can I keep my E-Portfolio active? You are coached till your E-Portfolio is complete.  Your assigned coach will remain available to you till you land a new job.  The only time limit is that if your E-Portfolio has not been touched by you once in a 90-day period, you will be sent a reminder to check/update your E-Portfolio.  If no further activity happens within a 30-day period from your lack of activity reminder, we will automatically archive your E-Portfolio.  It will not be deleted, merely archived.  Should you wish to activate it again, you would have to notify your coach or the Administrative staff via the contact form on the website.
