Veterans Employment Representatives are available in many of the WorkForce Centers (American Job Centers) to assist Veterans with barriers to employment, disabled Veterans, and transitioning Service Members.
Disabled Veterans Outreach Program Specialists (DVOPS) provide intensive case managed services designed to assist Veterans with the development and execution of a job search strategy, and provide (one-to-one) guidance on various aspects of job search. These may include, but are not limited to resume development, interviewing skills, networking and use of social media, and direct referral to employers with available jobs.
Additionally, Local Veterans Employment Representatives (LVER) provide valuable linkages to local employers and professional organizations to develop employment opportunities for Minnesota Veterans. They also work closely with other State, Federal and local Veteran Service Organizations and agencies.
Current or former Military members receive priority services in all Minnesota WorkForce Centers (WFC) across the state. WFC staff are dedicated to providing you with the fastest, most effective service strategy possible – in person or online. Specially trained Veterans Employment Representatives in the WFC’s can assist you if you: have been discharged or left active duty in the last three years; have significant issues finding or keeping a job; or have questions about benefits or other resources.
