Service First (Veterans)

As a Veteran of the Armed Services, you are a valued member of the civilian workforce with the skills, training, and character to meet the toughest challenges faced by today’s employers. Golden Sierra Job Training Agency strives to ensure that all Veterans and Transitioning Service Members have access to the tools needed to find good jobs with good wages and career pathways.

Many of our centers have staff who serve Veterans exclusively.

Veterans and eligible spouses receive access, on a priority of service basis*, to the full range of public employment and training services, including job search assistance workshops, resume assistance, labor market information, career counseling, job referral, and referral to other supportive and training resources. We also place a 24-hour “veterans only” hold on all new job listings posted on the CalJOBS website.

Many of our job centers include specialized staff who serve eligible Veterans and other eligible persons exclusively. These specialized staff are known as Disabled Veterans’ Outreach Program (DVOP) specialists and Local Veterans’ Employment Representatives (LVERs). To get started, contact your local center.

*Priority of service means that those Veterans and eligible spouses, who meet all the eligibility requirements for a program or service, are to receive access to that program or service either earlier in time or instead of persons who are not eligible for priority of service.
