Veteran Employment Services

The Department of Workforce Development (DWD), is committed to advancing employment opportunities for Wisconsin veterans through targeted business engagement and service and commitment to the veteran community.

It is important to build a network between veterans and employers because vets offer valuable insight to the workforce.

DWD offers many programs to advance veterans in the workforce. Visit WiscJobsforVets to learn more about programs, employment opportunities, and discover how DWD services are helping veterans throughout Wisconsin.

DWD highlights businesses who are supporting veterans in the workplace through the Vets Ready Employer Initiative. Employers who support veterans and their families in their workforce, prioritize hiring veterans, and connecting to the veteran community should apply to be recognized as a Vets Ready Employer.
