In one-on-one sessions, veterans and their spouses who are in the job market will be able to get free advice for their job search on Friday morning, January 24, 2014, in Washington, DC.
Some thirty human resources (HR) professionals will be available to coach on such skills as writing resumes, preparing for interviews, and identifying best approaches to job hunting. Individuals may raise any questions on searching for a job that they may have. This employment counseling will be scheduled in half-hour sessions. In addition, the Department of Labor’s Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS) will be participating in the workshop and provide advice on the resources it has available to assist with employment issues as well as representatives from Paralyzed Veterans of America's Operation PAVE program.
This event, Giving Back to Veterans, is sponsored by The OFCCP Institute. The Institute educates federal contractor employers regarding affirmative action and anti-discrimination practices, as regulated by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), including affirmative action and anti-discrimination practices that affect veterans.
A leading technology company, Honeywell, is hosting the event at its office, located close to the Judiciary Square and Union Station Metro stations on the Red Line and near the U.S. Capitol. The building is a secure building; therefore, any veterans and spouses wanting to attend are required to register in advance for the workshop. Registration is available on The OFCCP Institute’s website at this link.
News of the event comes from FortneyScott, a Washington, D.C. law firm that specializes in advising and counseling clients on employment issues, including those affecting veterans and other minorities.
