Find a Local Veterans' Employment Representative

Our New York State Career Centers are staffed with specially trained personnel that are dedicated to servicing veterans.

Local Veterans Employment Representatives (LVERs)
Local Veterans Employment Representatives are also veterans. They specialize in advocating on behalf of veterans with business, industry, and community organizations to promote employment and training opportunities for veterans. They also provide services including job matching and job placement for veterans, conduct employer outreach, inform Federal contractors of the process to hire qualified veterans, and promote credentialing and licensing opportunities for veterans.
