you have never been to Reno, let us tell you: it is nestled at the foot of the
Sierra Nevada Mountains with easy access to the Pacific Crest Trail. We are
just 30 minutes from beautiful Lake Tahoe offering most any water sport you can
imagine: fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding in addition to skiing and
snowboarding (where many Olympic athletes do their training). We are the home
of a dynamic art and event scene: Artown, Hot August Nights, Street Vibrations,
Rib Cook off, Balloon Races and that's just July September! Humidity is low
so temperatures remain (or at least feel) moderate.
The Reno VA is the teaching affiliate
of the University Of Nevada School Of Medicine, the state's only medical
school. The Davidson Academy, the state designated "university school for
profoundly gifted pupils", is located on the UNR campus. Additionally TMCC
offers accessible post high school classes and degrees and offers the
opportunity to continue higher education through UNR.
We encourage you to consider VA employment
in Reno, NV, join a team that values a healthy home/work life balance and be
rewarded by the role you'll play in keeping the promise to those who served.
Oh! Did we mention that we don't pay
state income tax in Nevada or our fabulous culture of all-you-can-eat sushi?
