The Veterans Employment Center (VEC)
The VEC provides tools and resources for service members and veterans to help with their transition to civilian employment.
American Job Centers (AJCs)
The Department of Labor (DOL) sponsors American Job Centers (AJCs), located in 2,500 locations throughout the United States, with at least one AJC in every state. Formerly known as One-Stop Career Centers, AJCs provide training, employment services, and job search assistance to job seekers and to employers. The services offered by these centers vary, but include benefits that all employees may access and receive free of charge. Many AJCs have specialized local Veterans' Employment Representatives (LVERs) and Disabled Veterans' Outreach Program Specialists (DVOPs) who work solely with veteran populations and can provide veteran applicant referrals.
The Federal Government has a long and outstanding record of employing veterans. There are laws providing Veterans' preference and special appointing authorities for veterans, as well as the fact that agencies recognize that hiring veterans is just good business. Federal service provides a means for veterans to continue their noble service to this country. The Office of Personnel Management created a web site, a single depository without redundancy and misinformation that meets all veterans' employment information needs.

My Next Move for Veterans
The Labor Department managed site is a very helpful tool for veterans preparing to enter the workforce or change jobs. The website allows our veterans to enter in their military occupation code and discover civilian jobs where their skills translate. They can browse job openings available in more than 900 career fields. The site also tells veterans who’s hiring in their area, what the overall hiring outlook is, how much different jobs pay, and where to receive training needed to get hired.
