VA Program Offers Jobseeker Workshops

April 09, 2012 | Terry Howell

The Department of Veterans Affairs program known as ‘VA for Vets’ is sponsoring FREE job seeker events for Veterans, Servicemembers, and Spouses who are seeking employment. The 3-hour ‘Job Seeker Boot Camp’ seminars will help attendees create winning resumes; develop key job searching strategies; build and utilize  networks; develop an effective social media presence; make a strong first impression; and deliver a stand out interview. Participants will leave the seminars with an action plan, electronic resources and a renewed enthusiasm for their job search.

The April Job Seeker Boot Camps will be held in two locations . The first event is from 9am to noon in Cherry Hill, NJ on April 17 at the Crown Plaza Cherry Hill and the second event will be held from 9am to noon  in Baltimore, MD on April 19th at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore.  

Register today for the Cherry Hill, NJ or  Baltimore, MD events

  2. I am trying to find a va educational place thats easy to get to by bus and in San Diego, Ca it is almost impossible because of the public transportation.

    Sounds like a great opportunity! We would like to partner with you and request this type of event for our area. I am the Kentucky DVOP for the Office of Employment and Training servicing Ft Campbell KY and if you are interested in partnering we can supply space, staff and outreach to the local areas. I have a strong partnership with the Tennessee Veterans Representatives as well as Ft Campbell staff thus feel solid in offering you this prospect. Best Wishes.

    sounds alot like career service center, or one stop center….and trust me it doesnt help that much, wha they need is to expand business for only veterans. Because as each day goes by, more and more are regretting the military due to the fact that it cripples your chances of landing a job in the civilian life

  5. What about the worst place hit by unemployment Dayton, Ohio by Wright Patterson AFB it’s impossible to get a civil service job there

  6. Any chance of this even being duplicated near Fairchild AFB, Near Spokane WA?
    Believe it or not air flight opportunities are hard to get on a limited budget and there really is a lot of veteran's unemployment issues up here in the Northwest USA too!
