Hiring Event for Veterans

Monday, November 12th

1pm - 6:30pm

Greer City Hall

Goodwill’s OPERATION: GOODJOBS and UPSTATE WARRIOR SOLUTION will be hosting a veteran and military spouses Career Fair on Monday, November 12th starting at 1pm at Greer City Hall.

Whether you're currently unemployed or looking for that next career move, this career fair is organized to help pair veterans and their families with over 15 Upstate employers looking for skilled military professionals in positions paying over $15/hour.

Because it can be difficult to translate military experience and responsibility into the qualifications employers are looking for, we're hosting several pre-event workshops to provide participants with the skills and resources needed to find that next job.  These workshops include:

Friday, November 2nd, 12pm-3pm- Networking & Mock Interviewing

Monday, November 5th, 10am -1pm - Digital Skills for the Employment Workplace (lunch provided)

Wednesday, November 7th, 10am-2pm - Career Readiness Workshop (resume building) and Dress for Success Workshop (Clothes Mentor) (lunch provided)

Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of these workshops designed specifically to educate veterans on how to re-think their resume and feel prepared to speak to their expertise and particular skill sets to potential employers.

All workshops and the Career Fair are free.

The Career Fair will include additional professional development workshops, a job fair and networking hour for all attendees and employers. Participants are welcome to attend whatever sessions they are available for that day. 

1:00-3:00pm - Keynote Welcome, LinkedIn Training and Career Transition Best Practices

3:00-5:00pm - Career Fair

5:00-6:30pm - Networking hour (dinner will be provided)

We ask all participants to come professionally dressed. If a job seeker is not currently enrolled in the Operation: GoodJobs program, we also ask the job seeker to bring a copy of their DD214 and Onet assessment.
