Disabled Veterans Program

Veterans employment representatives are available in many of Minnesota's WorkForce Centers to assist veterans with barriers to employment, disabled veterans, and transitioning service members.

Veterans employment representatives can help you if you have been discharged or left active duty in the last three years; have significant challenges finding or keeping a job; or have a service-connected disability. They work one-on-one with you to provide services custom-tailored to meet your individual needs.

Disabled veterans outreach program specialists (DVOPS) provide intensive case managed services designed to assist veterans with the development and execution of a job search strategy, and provide (one-to-one) guidance on various aspects of job search. These may include, but are not limited to resume development, interviewing skills, networking and use of social media, and direct referral to employers with available jobs.

Additionally, local veterans employment representatives (LVERs) provide valuable linkages to local employers and professional organizations to develop employment opportunities for Minnesota veterans. They also work closely with other state, federal and local veteran service organizations and agencies.
