NVTC Veterns Employment Initiative VETWORKING

Date:
March 29, 2017

Time:
5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.



The Northern Virginia Technology Council's Veteran Employment Initiative is offering a VETWORKING program which provides Veterans with career transition education and personal growth experiences necessary to succeed in seeking civilian employment. VETWORKING is a personal and professional development program which combines elements of networking and mentoring and connects transitioning service members/Veterans or their spouses with a Veteran support team in the region's technology sector. Through small group interactions, VETWORKING facilitates the job seeker's development of career search skills, building of professional networks and empowerment through the support of fellow job seekers and professional mentors.

The formal classroom program is broken down into two sessions of three and a half hours each on the evenings on March 29th & April 5th, a week apart at the MITRE Corporation facility at 1550 Westbranch Dr., McLean, VA. The start time for each session is 5 pm and a working dinner is provided. There is a maximum of 25 Veterans per cohort and once signed up you must commit to attending both sessions. The course content consists of:

  • A self-assessment using Gallup's StrengthsFinder 2.0 reviewed by a certified coach

  • A resume workshop using a qualified team to help tailor your resume to a particular job or career field

  • An assigned personal mentor to serve as a key support and resource during your job-seeking time frame

  • Tuning up your interviewing skills including your "elevator pitch" to prepare you for your upcoming job interviews

  • Connecting with professional corporate recruiters on a panel to glean insights on how companies hire and best practices during your interview process

  • Undergo actual interviews with corporate recruiters
