Veteran Priority of Services
As a Veteran of the Armed Services, you are a valued member
of Maryland's civilian workforce with the skills, training,
and character to meet the toughest challenges faced by today's
employers. The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) provides
grant funds to the State of Maryland providing employment
and training services to eligible residents and workers.
As a condition to receiving those funds, Priority
of Service (POS) (PDF document, 3.5MB, download
Adobe Acrobat for free) is given to qualified veterans
when referring individuals to job openings, USDOL funded
training programs and related services. In accordance with
the implementation of the Veterans' Priority Provisions
of the "Jobs for Veterans Act" (PL 107-288), qualified veterans
receive priority referral to services over non-veterans
as determined by each program's mandatory eligibility criteria.
