Veterans Employment Transition Seminar

“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”
– Theodore Roosevelt

How We Help

Veterans Employment Transition Seminar (VETS)

Transitioning from the military to the civilian workforce can be challenging.

The VETS course includes complete skills inventories, career interest and work values assessments, resume services, supportive services, networking strategies, as well as interview preparation and rehearsal sessions. Upon successful completion of the seminar, graduates and alumni have access to one-on-one and group career coaching, introductions to appropriate employment opportunities, and follow-on customized job placement services, all provided by OJRV. We have successfully placed many of our veteran “Job Ready” clients in high-level positions with several employers who recognize the valuable skill sets of our graduates. Once employed, our graduates and alumni receive additional retention services through OJRV to ensure continued success for both the employer and the veteran.

Our Intent
