LONG ISLAND, N.Y. (March 15, 2021) – As a part of a three part series, Hope For The Warriors will be presenting a free virtual employee readiness workshop March 29 from 12 - 1 p.m. EST, to help active-duty service members, veterans and military spouses in their search for employment.
As a part of the nonprofit’s Warrior’s Compass transition program, the Employee Readiness Workshop series will provide training to help prepare those in the military landscape for a job search in today’s civilian climate. The workshop will offer tools and tips as well as opportunities to network with other service members, military spouses, and companies committed to hiring those with military backgrounds.
Similar workshops will be held June 7 and September 20.
Presenters for the March workshop include Richard Deosingh from Robert Half Talent Solutions providing information about the organization and sharing “Insider tips for getting hired” and recruiting and human resources experts from Navy Federal Credit Union presenting transition tips.
The webinar and its presenters will cover topics such as resume revision, in-person and virtual interview training, online networking, and open dialogue surrounding military to civilian skillset translation. In addition, recruiters and human resources experts will share tips regarding best practices.
“The Employment Readiness Workshops were a great addition during the onset of the pandemic,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president/CEO of Hope For The Warriors. “Many service members transitioning had never experienced a virtual work environment, and we were honored to walk them through that journey. Much like military life, the civilian job force is every changing, and we hope to assist service members, veterans and military spouses through these changes.”
