Veterans' Employment Services

Michigan Works! Veterans' Employment Services  


Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) specialists are State of Michigan employees who provide intensive, individualized services to meet the employment needs of eligible veterans and spouses with significant barriers to employment. 

Services provided by these employment service professionals in assisting eligible veterans and spouses reduce and/or eliminate barriers to employment. Services include, but are not limited to:


  • resume development,
  • interviewing skills, networking
  • direct referral to other service providers

Michigan Works! Southwest complies with the Jobs for Veterans Act by giving veterans and eligible spouses priority of service status for all programs.

In addition, staff from Michigan's Workforce Development Agency are available at Michigan Works! Service Centers to provide intensive services to veterans and eligible spouses of veterans.
