FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Findlay, OH (March 24, 2014)--Military Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) invites veterans looking for a new career to attend the Veterans Career Assistance Program (VCAP) on Thursday, April 24. This career workshop will take place at MVRC's Findlay office, located at 423 Trenton Avenue. It will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and lunch will be provided.

The VCAP is an interactive workshop that will improve veterans' job-search skills. MVRC career specialists will lead the workshop and will teach cover letter and resume writing. If veterans have resumes, they should bring them, as they will spend time revising their current resumes or writing new ones.

"By the time they leave, each vet will have a basic, functional resume," says Tim Taylor, Director of Operations.

The VCAP is a group workshop, but veterans will receive individualized attention from MVRC career specialists. The specialists will work with veterans one-on-one to address their questions and show them how to write a marketable cover letter and resume.

Veterans interested in attending the Veterans Career Assistance Program must pre-register by Monday, April 21. To register, call career specialist Bob Driftmyer at 419-516-0411.

Military Veterans Resource Center is a nonprofit organization that provides career services to veterans who have served honorably. MVRC works with veterans one-on-one to identify the obstacles holding them back from employment and equips them with resources to help them overcome those obstacles. These may include job-readiness coaching, skills training, counseling, or supportive services and may be accessed through MVRC or through partnerships with veterans’ service organizations, private social service agencies, and/or state and federal agencies.
