How to Demonstrate Your Value in the Civilian Job Market
For many veterans, the transition from the military to the civilian workforce can be difficult. One of the challenges they encounter is how to effectively translate their previous skills and credentials when crafting a resume and preparing for a job interview. Many veterans are not aware of the valuable transferable skills they have developed during their military service -- and just how marketable these skills are to employers.
Join us for this free informational webinar and learn how to successfully convey the value of your military experience to civilian employers by following a few basic steps:
• Identifying your interests, skills, values and strengths
• Assessing your transferable skills
• Translating your military language and experience and for the civilian job market
• Creating an “Elevator Speech” to use in interviews and at networking events
The webinar will be led by Maribeth Gunner, career services coordinator at Excelsior College.
