Veterans Services

American Flag

Under federal law, veterans may receive preferential assistance for job placement services, as well as other programs. Veterans Employment Representatives and/or Disabled Veterans Outreach Representatives 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 service in referral to these jobs.

In addition, these staff members 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 in developing job interviewing and résumé writing skills, and help veterans conduct a productive job search and access job listings through electronic databases. We can provide information and refer veterans or their families to the proper support agencies if further assistance is needed or requested.  All services are at no cost to the public. 

IowaWORKS staff in Region 14 work to ensure veteran’s preference is maintained.

For more information or questions, send an e-mail to Region14.web@iwd.state.ia.us or call the Creston office at (641) 782-2119.
