BENEFITING: HIRE HEROES USA
EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2011
Each month, Hire Heroes USA, a non-profit organization, teaches free, multi-day workshops to wounded veterans on military bases nationwide. We help create the opportunity for these veterans to truly succeed in the next step of their lives- transitioning into the civilian workforce.
They learn how to craft a compelling resume that truly reflects their value and experience to prospective employers. We practice interviewing techniques and conduct mock interviews, so these veterans can confidently thrive in an interview setting. Additionally, we teach them networking skills to bring their career search to the next level by tapping into social media and their circle of friends and family.
We have an awesome curriculum, with talented teachers and volunteers. However, oftentimes the bases do not have enough computers for the veterans to use when crafting their resumes.
Help us purchase much needed Ipads to bring with us to these workshops for these amazing wounded veterans to use. We're shooting for ten!
