EconoVue Newsletter July 2023

Please enjoy our July Newsletter. This month, we highlight Nevada’s Veterans Job Placement Program.

After the Pandemic, Nevada’s Department of Employment and Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) recognized they needed to change how they conducted employer outreach.

DETR’s program first focused on how best to serve unemployed veterans, specifically veterans with significant barriers to employment. There was a dual responsibility to pinpoint the right career pathway for the veteran and quickly identify businesses more likely to hire those with significant barriers to employment.

With the early momentum from the veterans’ program, the State has increased program efficiency and effectiveness across other programs requiring employer engagement, including rapid response, job fairs, and proactive business outreach. Read more about Nevada’s challenge, solution, and broader impact.
