Who We Are

top-quality, employment-related services to veterans and employers.

menu of EDD One-Stop Career Center resources.

Employed by the state of California, this staff of dedicated professionals is available to assist Veterans with a
wide variety of issues and needs, from preparing a resume to obtaining a copy of their DD-214. They are also a
valuable resource for various training opportunities. Service connected disabled Veterans as well as those with
barriers to employment receive top priority.

Promotional and Informational Services
The Alameda County Veteran’s Representatives
sponsor and support various local events with the
sole intent of informing the public, particularly the
employer community, of the special skills, abilities
and needs of veterans.
Priority of Referral
When employers enter their job orders into CalJobs,
they have an option to search for applicants. During
the first 24 hours of that job order, they will only  see
veteran applicants.  Therefore, it is essential that you
enter your resume into CalJobs.  We will be glad to
assist you in doing so.
Unemployement Benefits
Former service members should apply for
unemployment insurance (UI) benefits immediately
upon separation from active military service. When
filing for UI benefits, recently discharged veterans
must provide information from their Certificate of
Release or Discharge Form Active Duty, DD Form
214 or NOAA Form 56-16 (or when not available,
Orders to Report, or Orders of Release may be
used). If you do not have this documentation, do not
delay in filing your claim. The Department can help
you obtain the necessary information to file your claim.
