VFW STATE NEWS & EVENTS

 
 
NC Works Veteran Services

Veteran Services

Home to nearly 800,000 veterans and several major military installations, North Carolina has a distinguished history in serving the U.S. military, veterans, and their families. The N.C. Division of Workforce Solutions provides job seeker services for veterans, transitioning service members, and eligible spouses.

How It Works

Veterans can visit their NCWorks Career Center and take advantage of the following no-cost services:

  • Career assessments
  • Labor market information
  • Access to training opportunities, job fairs, and workshops
  • Job interview preparation
  • Resume and cover letter assistance
  • Assistance with NCWorks Online
  • Access to computers and free Internet service
  • Help applying for federal employment and training programs in which veterans receive priority of service

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:

  • Disabilities
  • Homelessness
  • Unemployed for at least 27 weeks
  • Criminal background (released within the last 12 months)
  • No high school diploma or GED
  • Low income
  • Between 18-24 years old

NCWorks Online

The state’s official job-search website, NCWorks Online gives veterans access to job postings for 24 hours before they are made available to the general public. The system provides information on training opportunities, local services, and other resources available to veterans. Employers can also search exclusively for candidates who are veterans.

NCWorks Apprenticeships

Veterans participating in NCWorks Apprenticeships can continue to draw benefits from the GI Bill, even though they are employed as part of an apprenticeship. Learn more about apprenticeships.

How to Apply

Contact your NCWorks Career Center to find out more about other resources, programs, and services available.

Veterans can also use NCWorks Online to look for jobs and training opportunities in their areas. Registration is free.
