Iowa Workforce Development Offers Many Services for Veterans

Council Bluffs, Iowa From job search assistance to information about employment and training programs, Iowa Workforce Development offers many services for veterans.

We are pleased to serve the Iowa veterans who gave of themselves to preserve the freedoms we enjoy today, said Elisabeth Buck, Director of Iowa Workforce Development.

Eligible veterans can receive assistance for a productive job search or gain access to job listings through IWDs electronic data base. They can also receive assistance with job interviewing and rsum writing skills.

Veteran Representatives through Iowa Workforce Development monitor job listings from federal agencies and federal contractors to ensure that veterans get priority service in referral to these jobs, and work closely with clients of V.A. Vocational Rehabilitation.

Disabled Air Force veteran Walter Codney registered with IWD in November with a goal of having a career in hospital administration. With his disability being service-connected, he was able to enroll at Bellevue University with funds from the V.A. Vocational Rehabilitation and Education Program. He maintained an A-average while attending school and graduated ahead of schedule with a B.A. in Hospital Administration. Upon graduation, Codney was offered a job as the Department Chief, Public Health Flight at Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue, Nebraska.

This is just one example of the personalized service Iowa veterans receive from Iowa Workforce Development. For more information, contact the Council Bluffs center at (712) 242-2100.
