Veterans Services


Under federal law, veterans may receive preferential services for job placement services, as well as other programs. The Sioux City Workforce Development Center's “Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) Representative” is John Hessa.  He coordinate all services provided to veterans, including counseling, testing, and identifying training and employment opportunities. He also monitors job listings from federal agencies and federal contractors to ensure that veterans get priority service in referral to these jobs, and works closely with clients of Veterans Administration Vocational Rehabilitation.

In addition, John conducts 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. He works with veterans to place them in federally funded employment and training programs, develops job interviewing and résumé writing skills, and helps veterans conduct a productive job search and access job listings through electronic data bases.

The Region 12 DVOP may be contacted by Telephone at (712) 233-9030 ext 1015, or by FAX at (712) 277-8438.
