The Veterans Employment Service provides services designed to assist the Veteran or Eligible Spouse's employment services. The following paragraphs illustrate the types of services offered. All services are designed to increase the chances of finding gainful employment.

For Eligible Veterans and Eligible Spouses the Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) specialists can provide additional one-on-one employment services. Nevada's affiliation with
US Jobs and VETCENTRAL offers employment services with the greatest number of employer job openings in the State of Nevada.

  • Here is a program benefiting Veterans:
    Work Opportunity Tax Credit

  • Priority of Service" is received by a Veteran or Eligible Spouse and they are known as a Covered Person and means:

    (a) With respect to any qualified job training program, that a Covered Person shall be given priority over a non-Covered person for the receipt of employment, training and placement services provided under that program, not with standing any other provision of the law.

    (b) Priority in the context of providing Priority of Service to Veterans and  other Covered Persons in qualified job training programs covered by this regulation means the right to take precedence over non-covered Persons in obtaining services. Depending on the type of service of resource being provided, taking precedence may mean:

    (1) The Covered Person receives access to the service or resource earlier in time than the non-covered Person; or

    (2) If the service or resource is limited, the Covered Person receives access to the service of resource instead of or before the non-covered Person.

  • All Veterans and Eligible Spouses receive Priority of Service. Qualified Veterans and Eligible Spouses receive Priority of Service utilizing DVOP employment specialists. Non-Qualified Veterans and Eligible Spouses receive Priority of Services utilizing non-DVOP staff.

  • Job Search Workshops can teach the veteran job-seeker to take command of their job-search efforts.  Techniques of resume preparation, proper application procedures, and interviewing skills are also taught in the workshop setting.

  • Assessment & Guidance Services help the veteran job-seeker to make career-related decisions through aptitude testing, assessment, vocational guidance, counseling services, and access to Nevada's Career Information System (NCIS) for additional job search tools.

  • Labor Market Information gives job-seeking veterans valuable information about trends in the labor market.  This information is helpful in giving direction to the job search and in making informed career decisions. In Nevada, there is no better source of labor market information than the department's Research and Analysis Bureau.

Every Day is Veterans Day:

The Nevada JobConnect system places the highest priority on providing a variety of employment services to veterans of U.S. military service. Every Nevada JobConnect office has the responsibility of insuring priority of service to our nation’s veterans. That’s one of the reasons why – every day is Veterans Day in Nevada. Another reason: Nevada’s employers are strongly committed to creating job opportunities for veterans through training, re-training, and on-the-job training programs in their places of business. This exceptional relationship between Nevada JobConnect and the business community is integral to providing no-fee employment services to the men and women who have served this country.


The Career Enhancement Program (CEP) places program-qualified veterans into training and re-training opportunities. CEP offers veterans classroom and on-the-job training, while participating employers receive monetary incentives to help offset costs associated with the veteran's training.

How to Obtain Assistance:

Highly trained Veterans Representatives are located in most Nevada JobConnect offices.  These Veterans' Representatives are veterans themselves.  They have received specialized training by the Department of Labor in Employment Assistance specifically for veterans.  This training enables them to  provide unique assistance to veterans.
