Our Vision - "A world-class competitive workforce for Southeast Texas."

Thank you for Supporting Our Veterans!
Keeping in the spirit of thanksgiving, Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas would like to express its’ sincere appreciation to the businesses, educational institutions and associations for their participation in the 6th Annual Hiring Red, White & You! Veterans Job Fair (HRWY). The event, held Thursday, November 9, 2017, at the Beaumont Workforce Solutions Center on Park Street, hosted forty one (41) businesses and employers.

These entities displayed their true support for our Veterans in Southeast Texas by providing on-site access to employment opportunities. Additionally, Veterans organizations such as Jefferson County Bar Association (JCBA) Veterans Legal Initiative and the Military Veteran Peer Network/Spindletop, provided face-to-face advice and services to the military veterans at the Job Fair.

For Veterans, getting a job is a critical step to successful transition into community life after military service. Veterans receive priority assistance in the workforce centers with first access to new job postings and individualized support provided by Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) employment specialists housed in each center. Last year, over 2,600 Veterans accessed services in the Southeast Texas Workforce Solutions Centers and as many as 1,600 Veterans were employed, according to Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) labor market data. Seventy three (73) veterans and fifty nine (59) job seekers attended this years’ HRWY event.

Additional information regarding Veterans’ services and resources is available, 24/7, on our website at this link. Employers, please click this link to access information on incentives for hiring and retaining Veterans.
