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



My only regret is that I did not know about the NOVA Job Center sooner.


NOVAworks job centers have re-opened!

NOVAworks job centers are now open for in-person services. These services will be by appointment only and are in addition to the remote services, which will continue to be available.
