Some veterans face significant barriers that make it difficult for them to find suitable employment, especially vets who are transitioning into civilian life. Most offices have specialized staff—all of whom are veterans—who work closely with employers to create more opportunities for veterans and provide the following services to veterans themselves:

  • Help developing an employability plan and goals
  • Coaching in individual and group settings
  • Referrals to supportive services, including vocational rehabilitation, transportation, elder care, food and nutrition services, and non-profit organizations that address homelessness

The following criteria are considered significant barriers to employment:

  • A disabled or special disabled veteran with a service-connected disability (entitled to compensation from the VA, or discharged or released from active  duty for a service-connected disability )
  • Homelessness
  • Recently Separated and unemployed for at least 27 weeks within the last 12 months
  • Criminal background
  • No high school diploma or GED
  • Low income
  • Between 18-24 years old
