Veterans Services

Veteran Saluting Flag

Under federal law veterans may receive preferential assistance for job placement services, as well as other programs.  The Ottumwa IowaWORKS Southern Iowa office has a Veteran's Representative, who coordinates 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 preference in referral to these jobs, and works closely with clients of VA Vocational Rehabilitation.

In addition, the representative conducts outreach programs with employers, community and veteran's 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 also 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 databases.

Other IWD personnel in Region 15 also work to ensure priority of service is maintained. If you are a veteran and live in Region 15, call (641) 684-5401, extension 40003.
