Military Veterans Resource Center invites job seeking veterans to attend a career workshop on Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014. Career specialists will help veterans jumpstart their careers by improving their job search skills and teaching them how to become more competitive candidates. This event is free of charge and will take place at MVRC's Springfield Resource Center, located at 1920 Kenton St. It will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"We'll work with vets one-on-one and make sure they're prepared to communicate their skills and experiences to civilian employers," said MVRC Executive Director Len Proper. "Many past participants have received interview invitations and job offers soon after completing the workshop."
Veterans who already have resumes should bring them, as they will spend time revising their current resume or writing a new one. Career specialists will also conduct mock interview sessions and help the participants improve their interview skills.
Participants must pre-register by contacting career specialist Leslie Battle at 937-523-0880, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating for this workshop is limited, so call today to be sure of a seat!
