Services for Military Veterans

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. 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.  These staff are military veterans and have received specialized training at the National Veterans Training Institute (NVTI) to work with veterans and employers. They understand how to bridge the skills and experiences of veterans with that of the job requirements in local industries.
