Finding a meaningful civilian career may feel overwhelming. Our SC Works centers across the state have staff, many of whom are veterans or service members themselves, who are specifically trained to assist military jobseekers find civilian employment.
Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) representatives provide intensive case management services to targeted veterans with emphasis in meeting the employment needs of veterans who are economically or educationally disadvantaged.
Local Veterans’ Employment Representatives (LVER) conduct employer outreach to help veterans gain employment and provide individualized job development services to veterans. They market job-seeking veterans as individuals who have highly valuable skills and experience, and serve as advocates for veterans with businesses, industries and other community-based organizations.
Through the support and assistance from our LVERs and DVOPs, veterans are able to receive priority employment services, which includes group and individual career coaching, job referrals, resume preparation and job training programs and services.
Veterans not only receive priority service in our SC Works Centers, but also through SC Works Online Services (SCWOS). For the first 24 hours that a job is listed on SCWOS, only jobseekers that have identified themselves as a member of the military community can view and apply for the position.
