WorkSource is a statewide partnership of state, local, and nonprofit agencies that provides an array of employment and training services to job seekers and employers in Washington.
Federal law entitles veterans and eligible spouses priority access to WorkSource services. This includes priority referrals to jobs that are listed with WorkSource, as well as other employment and training programs.
If you were discharged after 11 Sept 2001, you can sign up for intensive one-on-one employment support through the federal Gold Card program to help with your job hunt.
In addition to individualized job hunt support, local WorkSource offices host a variety of free classes and workshops on a regular basis, including Resume Writing, Job Search Strategies, Office Computer Basics, and Interview Practice Sessions.
In addition to providing employment assistance, WorkSource markets the advantages of hiring veterans to local businesses and connects veterans to services that help with health care, food, clothing, or housing.
Terrie Garcia-Hernandez is the veterans representative at both WorkSource Wenatchee and Okanogan County, and can be reached directly at 509-423-6678
