Under federal law, veterans may receive preferential assistance for job placement services, as well as other programs. Veterans Employment 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. They also work closely with clients of the Veterans
Administration Vocational Rehabilitation.
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.
Other Iowa Workforce Development personnel in Region 8 also work to ensure veterans are given primary consideration.
