With a tough job market and more veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, veterans are continuing to struggle with finding employment after their military service. One of the first things a job applicant must do is provide a resume and cover letter – and the Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) is helping veterans with this task.
On Tuesday, February 28 from 2-3 p.m. EST the DVNF will be hosting an online webinar with noted speaker Rod Dillehay, who has worked for more than 20 years helping recruit and screen candidates for high-salary positions. The webinar is free and open to veterans, retired members of the military, reservists, active duty service members, and related veteran caregivers such as spouses, family members, and Veteran Service Officers.
Some of the topics that will be covered in the series include:
- resume organization;
- how to translate military skills to resume points relevant to your employment;
- LinkedIn 101;
- getting your resume noticed online and on an employers’ desk;
- mistakes to avoid with online job applications; and
- cover letter tips.
This webinar is just one in the DVNF’s Veterans Employment Webinar Series – a great resource for veterans looking for work. There are many resources and benefits for veterans to find employment and financial support after having served our country.
