This week, there is a great event coming up at Ft. Dix called Mission . . . Career Success, designed to support 1300 returning reservists who are coming home and looking to transition back to the workforce.
Here's an excerpt from the program description:
"Spearheaded by the Garden State Council-SHRM Workforce Readiness team, chapter volunteers throughout New Jersey will provide support to 1,300 returning NJ Reservists from the 50th Infantry, with the opportunity to attend a wide variety of job readiness workshops designed to provide insight and awareness to their career options and conduct a successful job search.
"Throughout the afternoon, Reservists will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one for a mini coaching session with a Career Coach, HR or Recruiting Professional who will provide feedback on resume content, interviewing issues specific to the Reservist and career guidance."
I'll be there, along with several hundred volunteers, giving a few hours as a job search coach.
