When transitioning from the military back to civilian life it can be challenging to turn that military experience into a civilian resume that will stand out in the corporate world. Career Development Partners has a commitment to assisting veterans by providing coaching and resume assistance to our local veterans who have been recently discharged.
Veterans have the opportunity to work with Rick Christensen, Director of Career Transition and a veteran, on honing the skills to translate their resume and work experience from military terms to civilian. He will give a coaching session on how to interview and learn to communicate those same things verbally.
Troops to Teachers is a U.S. Department of Defense program that helps eligible military personnel begin a new career as teachers in public schools where their skills, knowledge and experience are most needed.
The United Association of Plumbers, Pipefitters, and Sprinklerfitters (UA)’s Veterans In Piping (VIP) Program provides returning Veterans with 16 weeks of accelerated welding training. The program is preceded by an additional two weeks of transitional training to help returning Veterans to adjust to civilian life.
