Veterans Services

A woman sargeant wearing camoflauged clothingUnder federal law, veterans may receive preferential services for job placement services, as well as other programs. The Spencer Workforce Development Center's “Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) Representative” is Heather Warren. She coordinates all services provided to veterans, including counseling, testing, and identifying training and employment opportunities. She 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, Heather 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. She 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 data bases. 

"The Key to Career Success campaign" connects veterans and service members with high quality career planning, training, and job search resources available at local One-Stop Career Centers.
