We are proud to offer Priority of Service to veterans and their eligible spouses. This means that if you served on Active Duty in the United States military, you will:

  • Be served first by the next available staff member
  • Get first priority for jobs and training for which you are eligible and qualified


Disabled Veterans’ Outreach Program Specialists (DVOPs)

DVOPs are disabled veterans themselves. They provide intensive case management services to veterans with significant barriers to employment, special disabled and disabled veterans, and veterans ages 18 to 24. They also provide a full range of employment services, including comprehensive assessments, individual employment plans, job referrals, referrals to training and support services, and resume and interview preparation assistance.

Local Veterans’ Employment Representatives (LVERs)

LVER staff are also veterans. They specialize in advocating on behalf of veterans with business, industry, and community organizations to promote employment and training opportunities for veterans. They also provide services including job matching and job placement for veterans, conduct employer outreach, inform Federal contractors of the process to hire qualified veterans, and promote credentialing and licensing opportunities for veterans.

You may be asked to complete determination paperwork.  If you did not qualify to meet with one of our DVOP Specialists, you will still continue to receive priority of service and will meet with our Labor Service Staff. 

Other services available through our Career Centers include:

  • Career Counseling
  • Skills Assessment
  • Job Search Assistance
  • Resume Preparation Assistance
  • Information for Civil Service Postings
  • Referrals to other agencies that provide services to veterans.
