Opportunities for Veterans  

November is a time for reflection, giving thanks, and honoring the sacrifices of others. The Career Discovery NYC team would like to say a special thank you to our Veterans and their families on this Veterans Day. Thank you for your service.  

In addition to the resources shared on Career Discovery NYC, we encourage you to check out our Workforce1 Career Center resources for veterans. 
If you have served at least one day in the active military, naval, or air service, including the Reserves and National Guard, you and your spouse are eligible for priority of service at all of our Workforce1 Career Centers

We have dedicated Veteran Specialists, many of whom are veterans themselves.

They are available to help you: 
  • Connect to employers committed to hiring veterans 
  • Learn about training, benefits, and other support services 
  • Translate military experience into skills for civilian jobs 
  • Connect to other organizations for resources beyond employment 

Additional resources are available through the NYC Department of Veterans' Services
