Veteran's Services

Veteran and Flag

Under federal law, veterans may receive preferential assistance for job placement services, as well as other programs. The Region 13 Iowa Workforce Development office Veteran Employment Representative is Ellen Fritz.  Ellen serves as Disabled Outreach Program Specialist, who coordinates all services provided to veterans with significant barriers to employment, including counseling, testing, and identifying training and employment opportunities. Ellen also monitors job listings from federal agencies and federal contractors to help ensure that veterans get priority service, and work closely with clients of VA Vocational Rehabilitation. 

In addition, Ellen Fritz conducts active outreach programs with 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. She also works with eligable 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 data bases.
