How do service members find jobs after they leave the military? How can businesses hire experienced service members?
The military offers “Hiring Our Heroes,” a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities. On July 7 and 8, there will be a series of roundtable discussions, six employment workshops, followed by a hiring fair. Those workshops are: Small Business Workshop, Resume Writing Workshop, Interview Skills Workshop, Employers Workshop, Veterans Administration Workshop and a Department of Labor Workshop.
These events host key Federal & State agencies, influential military leaders, innovators in the business and employer community, and local community leaders. These summits also feature participation by and speakers from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Transition to Veterans Program Office, the U.S. Army and Soldier for Life and Installation Management Command, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
