OVES helps Veterans find jobs through a range of employment services and targeted business engagement.
There are two staff positions at the OVES that are focused on helping Veterans achieve their employment goals.
Local Veterans Employment Representatives (LVERs) conduct outreach to employers and advocacy with hiring executives to increase employment opportunities for Veterans and encourage hiring disabled Veterans.
Disabled Veteran Outreach Program (DVOP) specialists provide intensive services for Veterans and eligible Spouses with significant barriers to employment. DVOPs work one-on-one to conduct comprehensive assessments, develop individual employment plans and offer an array of employment and training solutions. For a complete list of eligibility requirements for DVOP assistance please review the OVES, Pre-Screening Form.
