The job search may be a strange and unknown “battlefield” for our soldiers leaving the military, settling back into civilian life and getting a job. A free seminar, “A Few Good Jobs for Vets in Transition” will be held on Thursday, August 27th. Paul Madsen is leading the seminar and says their goal is to help put the skills soldiers learned in the military and transfer them to work in the private sector.
Madsen says, “One of the parts is to really help veterans access the skills they do have. Sometimes their skills they learned in the military don’t necessarily translate to the civilian marketplace so we are going to help them to learn exactly what skills transfer and how to sell those skills.”
Madsen says part two of the seminar is how to conquer the interview process. The seminar is from 7 to 8:30 pm at the Military Veterans Service Center at 21st and Harvell Circle in Bellevue. There is no charge for the seminar but space is limited and advance registration is suggested.
