Veterans' Employment Representatives
Veteran Services ensures that job and training services are offered to veterans on a priority basis. Veterans have priority over non-veterans regarding job placement, counseling, testing, referral to supportive services, job development, and job training. Local veteran employment representatives (LVERs) and disabled veterans outreach program representatives (DVOPs) provide these services to veterans in New Mexico.
LVER -- Local Veteran Employment Representative
LVERs primary duties are conducting outreach to employers, facilitating job search workshops, and providing employment and training services to veterans.
DVOP -- Disabled Veteran Outreach Program Specialist
DVOPs focus on providing intensive services with priority to special disabled, disabled veterans, and other eligible veterans in accordance with priorities determined by Public Law 107-288.
