Through Priority1, veterans and their spouses can get help connecting to stable, meaningful work.

Career specialists at Priority1 can connect you to employers dedicated to hiring veterans and their spouses. Services include helping you prepare for job interviews, building and developing a resume, and providing work attire. It also helps you use military skills and real-life experiences to get a job. Veterans also have priority of service at all of the Workforce1 Career Centers.

Who it's for

Anyone who has served at least one day in the active military, naval, or air service, including the Reserves and National Guard, can participate. Spouses of veterans are also eligible.


Priority1 schedules one-on-one appointments with Veteran Specialists based on your availability and their operating hours, usually Monday through Friday, 9am–5pm.
