READJUSTMENT COUNSELING SERVICES
A local resource, the Veterans Center welcomes home war veterans by providing quality readjustment services to veterans and their families.
When you initially report to a Brevard Workforce Career Center, one of our associates will instruct you on the registration process. You will be asked to enter your employment history, job skills, salary and personal desires into the statewide Employ Florida information system. As local employers list jobs, veteran applicant files are searched to find qualified veterans. If a qualified veteran matches the employer’s desired skills, a veteran representative will make every attempt to contact the veteran. Additionally, a Brevard Workforce representative is available for job assistance, counseling and any other veteran related issues.
2. SEARCHING FOR WORK with Brevard Workforce
Brevard Workforce gives you career guidance, online job searches, resume and letter-writing assistance; training and education program information, detailed information on specific employers and industries and access to state and national job searches.

Employ Florida allows a user to search for employment and create a basic resume. Employ Florida also allows users to access their job skills and investigate other career fields.
