Veteran Services 

Veteran Representatives specialize in job assistance,
they do not have access to Unemployment Information

Soldier holding flagUnder federal law, veterans may receive preferential assistance for job placement services, as well as other programs. In Iowa City and Cedar Rapids Workforce Development Centers there is a “Local Veteran Employment Representative” and/or a “Disabled Veterans Outreach Representative”  available to coordinate all services provided to veterans, including counseling, testing, and identifying training and employment opportunities. They also monitor job listings from federal agencies and federal contractors to ensure that veterans get priority of service in referral to these jobs, and work closely with clients of VA Vocational Rehabilitation.

In addition, they conduct active outreach programs with employers, community and veterans’ organizations, unions, and local counseling and social service agencies to make sure veterans know about and receive the services for which they are eligible. They also work with veterans to place them in federally funded employment and training programs, develop job interviewing and résumé writing skills, and help veterans conduct a productive job search and access job listings through electronic databases.

Other IWD personnel in Region 10 also work to ensure veteran’s preference is maintained. If you are a veteran and live in Region 10, call:

Cedar Rapids Representative at (319) 365-9474 Ext.31113, or Iowa City Representative at (319) 351-1035.
