Veterans' Services


For those transitioning from the military or who once served in the armed forces, designated veteran employment counselors are prepared to assist veterans and eligible spouses in finding a new career.

  • Priority of Service

Through Veterans' Preference, the netWORKri one-stop career center system offers priority of service to veterans and eligible spouses of veterans under the Jobs for Veterans Act. Priority of service gives covered individuals preference over non-covered individuals in receiving any Workforce Investment Act employment, training and placement services. This includes providing first access to services when a time element is involved, and giving veterans preferred registration in a limited enrollment situation.

Veterans are asked to identify themselves at all points of entry to the netWORKri system, including in-person check-in at any one-stop center and online registration in the EmployRI online job search toolkit. Once identified as veterans, claimants will be referred to the Veterans’ Employment Counselor affiliated with the particular one-stop center.

Veterans eligible for Priority of Service include those who have served in the active military, naval or air service, and who were discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable. This includes National Guard and Reserve Personnel.

Also eligible are spouses of veterans who have died as a result of a service-connected disability; spouses of veterans who have a total disability resulting from a service-connected disability; and spouses of active duty members of the armed services who, at the time of the spouses’ application for services, have been classified as missing in action, captured or forcibly detained for more than 90 days.


Specialized services are available through Disabled Veterans' Outreach Program Specialists and Local Veterans' Employment Representatives. Employment counselors are located in each netWORKri Career Center.
