Indiana is committed to providing quality employment services to veterans at our WorkOne Centers. Veterans go to the front of the line and each office has an onsite veteran's representative that assists with employment needs.
DWD's Veteran Service program provides specific job placement services. To qualify for placement services you must meet the following definition and be registered with your local WorkOne Center.
Any individual who served more than 180 days on active duty (not for Reserve or National Guard training).
Any individual who served on active duty and was released because of a service connected illness or injury. (Does not have to meet the 180-day rule)
Any individual who was in the National Guard or Reserves and was called to active duty during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge is authorized. (Examples are Panama, Grenada, Haiti, Beruit, Persian Gulf, Desert Shield or Desert Storm. You do not have to have served in that area.)
Services that are provided to qualified veterans include:
Direct referral to jobs (Both established jobs and job development)
Assistance looking for a job, developing a resume and preparing for an interview
Referral to other federal, state and local agencies
Information on veteran's rights and employment benefits
Assistance transitioning into civilian employment

These services provide veterans with the necessary information they need to find and secure suitable employment and make the transition from the military to the civilian workforce. If you are a veteran, please visit your nearest WorkOne Center and speak to a veteran's representative today. All representatives are honorably discharged service members that specialize in assisting in your employment needs.
