Veteran Services (Jobs for Veterans State Grants)

The Workforce Development Division (WDD) and the network of American Job Centers (AJCs) offer an array of employment and training services to veterans and other eligible persons and provides relevant applicant recruiting assistance tailored to the needs of the business community. Specialized veteran staff known as the Local Veterans Employment Representative (LVER) & Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) are employed at the AJCs to offer assistance to employers seeking to hire veterans with specific skills and experiences.

LVER staff are military veterans and have received specialized training at the National Veterans Training Institute (NVTI). They understand how to bridge the skills and experiences of veterans with that of the job requirements in local industries. Veteran staff at the AJCs are prepared to help employers to leverage federal and state hiring incentives aimed at reducing the costs in hiring and training veterans for employment.

Priority of Service
Priority of service means, with respect to any qualified Department of Labor employment and job-training programs, that Veterans 1 and Eligible Spouses 2 shall be given priority over non-Veterans for the receipt of employment, training, and placement services, notwithstanding any other provision of the law.
