Services for Vets

Pacific Gateway helps Veterans access a number of resources through our partnership with the Employment Development Department (EDD), and connections to other organizations.  Often, Veterans are eligible for a number of special resources.  


Some of our no-fee services include:

  • Employment preparation that includes vocational guidance, career counseling, workshops on resume preparation, interviewing techniques, and job search strategies
  • Referrals to employment and training programs, including on-the-job training opportunities
  • Connections to the Veterans Service Center at the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base
  • Referrals and easy access to Veteran benefits and community services
  • Transition & Housing Assistance Programs to provide a smooth transition for individuals leaving the military and going into the private sector
  • Referrals and service information for the Long Beach Veterans Administration Medical Center

Talk to a Veteran Employment Services Specialist about your specific needs and how we can be of assistance.
