Veterans: Making Connecticut Stronger

Veterans receive priority reemployment services from trained staff at American Job Centers (AJCs) throughout the state. Staff offer specialized services to veterans reintegrating into civilian life; assist veterans in identifying careers after military service; and help veterans match their unique skills to jobs in demand by Connecticut employers. Additionally, staff work with the state’s employers to source and identify jobs for veterans and create networks between veterans and employers.
