The N.C. Division of Workforce Solutions provides Job Seeker services for veterans, transitioning service members, and eligible spouses.
NCWorks Online is the official North Carolina state labor exchange system. If you are a Job Seeker looking for employment, we invite you to take advantage of our online job search and referral services.
One way North Carolina recognizes Veterans Priority is by requiring a 24-hour “Vet Hold” on each new internal job order in NCWorks Online. Jobs in “Vet Hold” status can be viewed by individuals classified as veterans 24 hours prior to individuals not classified as veterans, and staff can refer only veterans to these jobs. They are open to qualified vets and non- vets after the 24-hour vet hold expires.
Also, the NCWorks Online Virtual Recruiter allows you to create a Job Alert, to notify you when jobs meeting your criteria become available. You can configure the Virtual Recruiter by registering an NCWorks Veterans Portal account, logging in, and visiting Job Seeker Services. If you already have an NCWorks Online account, use that login information.
NCWorks Veterans Portal offers additional privileges. Depending on your needs, there are several ways to find employment:
- Job Search
