Does SAIF apply veteran’s preference in the recruitment process?
SAIF provides qualifying veterans and disabled veterans with preference in employment in accordance with ORS 408.225, 408.230, and 408.235. The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries enforces public employer compliance with veteran’s preference requirements.
If I am a veteran, what do I submit to receive preference in your recruitment process?
Qualifying veterans and disabled veterans may obtain preference in employment by submitting the following documentation as verification of eligibility:
- A copy of the Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214 or 215), or
- A letter from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs indicating receipt of a nonservice-connected pension
Disabled veterans also must submit a copy of their veteran’s disability preference letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs, unless the information is included in the DD Form 214 or 215.
To be considered for preference, you must submit the proper documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org by the application deadline.

No, our online application system provides us with all the information we need, and makes the process more efficient for you and for us.
In addition, using our online form prevents candidates from inadvertently sending us confidential information.

Do I need to fill out a new application every time I want to apply for a position? Can I apply for more than one position?
Once you have created your profile and employment application, you will be able to use the same application whenever you apply for an open position. By applying on the website, you can submit your application for as many open positions as you feel qualified for and are interested in.
How do I change my profile information?

What if my computer crashes or times out while I am applying? Do I need to begin the process again?
