GOODWILL / UPSTATE WARRIOR SOLUTION TO HOST HIRING EVENT FOR VETERANS
In partnership with Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina and Upstate Warrior Solution, the Operation: GoodJobs program will be hosting a Veterans Career Fair on Monday, November 12th.
The event will be held from 1-6:30pm at Greer City Hall, Greer. Operation: GoodJobs is a Goodwill program that provides one-on-one, intensive assistance to veterans and their family members with benefits including comprehensive career self-assessments, individualized career and financial planning and career readiness activities.
The event will include professional development workshops, a job fair and a networking hour for all participants and employers. Prior to the career fair, Goodwill will be hosting several pre-event seminars in order to prepare and train veteran participants in skills like resume writing, interviewing and digital abilities.
“Events like this Veterans Career Fair are important for the Upstate community,” says Charlie Hall, president of Upstate Warrior Solution. “Many people don’t realize that military and military spouses are engrossed in a dense culture while on duty. Once discharged or retired, reacclimating into civilian life – specifically the professional business industry – can be challenging to articulate how their specific skills and expertise translate into civilian jobs. Events and workshops like this help our veteran community get the resources they need to meet with employers and present themselves as qualified candidates.”
