Veterans Receive Priority of Service
The Jefferson County Workforce Center is charged with ensuring that all eligible veterans are provided with maximum employment and training opportunities, with priority given to disabled veterans and veterans of the Vietnam-era.
Those services include, but are not limited to: registration, counseling, referral to supportive services, referral to job openings, job development or training.
Connecting Colorado matches job seekers and employers. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment provides this Web site as a free resource to job seekers and employers who wish to use the Colorado Workforce Center system through a convenient and secure method.
When making job referrals, our employment specialists prioritize by:
The U.S. Department of Labor offers employment and training services to eligible veterans through two principle programs: Disabled Veterans' Outreach Program (DVOP), and Local Veterans' Employment Representative (LVER) Program.
The DVOP specialists develop job training opportunities for veterans, with special emphasis on veterans with service connected disabilities. They provide direct service to veterans enabling them to be competitive in the labor market, working with employers, veterans' organizations, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Defense, and community-based organizations to link veterans with appropriate jobs and training opportunities.
The LVER specialists provide assistance to veterans by supervising the provision of all services to veterans furnished by employment service employees, including counseling, testing, and identifying training and employment opportunities. They monitor job listings from federal contractors to see that eligible veterans get priority in referrals to these jobs. LVER specialists work with community leaders, employers, unions, training programs, and veterans' service organizations to make sure eligible veterans get the services to which they are entitled.
We are here for you!
The U.S. Department of Labor and the Jefferson County Workforce Center place great emphasis on service to veterans, especially to recently separated veterans, and to those with a service-connected disability or some other barrier to employment.
