The NOVAworks Job Center offers a wide array of employment services to help veterans with their job search, including helping those recently separated from military service, in transitioning into civilian occupations.

Veteran Priority of Service

As a veteran or eligible spouse, you are entitled to receive priority access to services available through the NOVAworks Job Center, which includes:

  • Three-hour “veterans only” pre-registration for workshops through NOVAworks' online system
  • Priority access to drop-in career advising
  • A 24-hour “veterans only” hold on all new job orders received by the CalJOBS labor exchange system
  • Specialized employment and training services to veterans by trained veterans representatives
  • Referrals to supportive services
  • Assistance with re-training / skills training when funds are available



I have never enjoyed a class as much as the NOVA workshop. The instructor was well prepared, possessed excellent presentation skills, was empathetic, and shared the information with humor and enough animation to keep the class actively engaged.
