Workforce Solutions is committed to those who are dedicated to service of our country! If you served in the Armed Forces we are honored to meet your job search and training needs. Honorably discharged veterans and eligible spouses are afforded priority services in our system. As a veteran or eligible spouse, you also receive precedence to use resources in our centers. This includes computers, phones, faxes, and referrals to new job postings. If you require assistance from staff, you will be served promptly on a priority basis. You will be granted priority access to training for which you are qualified and where funding exists. You will also receive priority of service for childcare services.
Texas Veterans Commission
Through the Texas Veterans Commission, the Veterans Employment Services Program offers employment services to all eligible Veterans and qualified individuals in Texas. The TVC provides a full range of employment services. On the Veterans page you’ll find information about how to match your military experience to civilian occupations. You can earn college credit for your military experience and get resources to assist you in transitioning to civilian life. You can also learn about incentives for employers who hire veterans via Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC).
TVC maintains staff in the Workforce Solutions Tyler and Longview offices. These staff members assist employers in matching qualified veterans for potential employment opportunities. Staff also provide intensive services through job-coaching and career guidance to eligible veterans facing barriers to employment.
Texas Veterans Leadership Program
The Texas Veterans Leadership Program (TVLP) is a resource and referral network. Its purpose is to connect returning veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan (OEF, OND, & OIF VETS Only) with the resources and tools they need to lead productive lives. We want veterans to enjoy the full benefits of the society they have willingly serviced. For more information, visit Texas Veterans Leadership Program or call (888) VET-TEX1.
