Veteran Services

You may qualify for special services if you served in the military

The links on the left take you to a wide array of benefits and services to help military veterans succeed in the civilian job market.

Here in Washington state, WorkSource helps thousands of military veterans – including disabled veterans – find jobs each year.

As a veteran, you can get priority access to WorkSource services. This includes priority referrals to jobs that are listed with WorkSource, as well as other employment services.

WorkSource centers offer veterans and their spouses:

  • Job listings, job referrals and hiring events.

  • Résumé, application and interviewing assistance.

  • Use of computers, photocopiers and phones.

  • Skill assessments and referrals to training and other resources.

On the WorkSource website, you also can identify yourself as a veteran to make it easier for vet-friendly employers to find you, and you can search for job openings where employers are giving veterans priority over other applicants.

Most WorkSource centers have veteran employment specialists whose sole job is to help military veterans with disabilities and other severe employment barriers. They’ll assess your skills and interests and put together an employment plan that’s right for you.
