Veterans' Priority

The U.S. Department of Labor provides grant funds to the State of Maine to provide employment and training services to eligible residents and workers. As a condition to receiving those funds, priority of service will be given to qualified veterans when referring individuals to job openings, DOL funded training programs or related services. In accordance with the implementation of the Veterans' Priority Provisions of the "Jobs for Veterans Act" (PL 107-288), qualified veterans will receive priority referral to services over non-veterans as determined by each program's mandatory eligibility criteria.

Information and assistance will be provided by CareerCenter staff regarding available employment programs, training opportunities and services, eligibility requirements, and veteran's priority. The Maine JobLink registration process has been developed to determine veterans' eligibility, and an American Flag identifies veterans' resumes listed on Maine JobLink for employers. Veterans are encouraged to avail themselves of these opportunities.

For more information on program eligibility and Veteran Priority details, visit or contact your local CareerCenter. Veteran Employment and Training staff and CareerCenter staff are available to explain program mandatory eligibility and veterans' priority. A list of centers is available on our Contact Us page.
