Events by EventfulAugust 27, 2013 – Hiring Our Heroes Employment Workshop – Lafayette, LA
Hiring Our Heroes is partnering with the public, private, and non-profit sectors to develop customized employment workshops for our nation’s veterans, military spouses, and transitioning servicemembers. Through providing these groups with comprehensive presentations, one-on-one mentoring, and career-focused tools, Hiring Our Heroes Employment Workshops aim to ease their transition and enhance their employability.
A workshop will typically last two hours. The first hour is dedicated to group sessions on essential job-seeking skills, including presentations on “How to Write a Resume” and “How to Work a Job Fair.” The second half of the workshop allows each attendee to take advantage of an individual sit-down with a professional who will help them develop an elevator pitch, participate in a mock interview, and create and print more effective resumes and business cards. The unique online suite of tools that Hiring Our Heroes and its partners have developed, such as VetNet, eMentor, and Personal Branding, will be integrated into the workshop curriculum. At the conclusion of the workshop, attendees can put their new skills and improved resumes to work as they attend the job fair.
Interested candidates must complete this EventBrite electronic pre-registration in order to participate. Please bring a copy of your current resume to the workshop if you have one. A maximum of 50 participants will be accepted for the full workshop.
