Indianapolis, IN (January 31, 2023) – Operation: Job Ready Veterans (OJRV) is pleased to announce that they will further outreach and sustainability goals in the Chicagoland area with funds awarded by The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation.
OJRV will be using this funding to build and strengthen partnerships in the Chicagoland area as well as to establish an additional Chicagoland Employment Transition Manager position to strengthen job placement support and career transition services for veterans, service members, and military families. OJRV Employment Transition Managers work closely with individual clients to help translate military skills to corresponding civilian equivalent skills, identify meaningful career pathways, and address individual barriers to employment. One-on-one services offered at no cost to clients include individualized support for resume and cover letter development, job search assistance, interview preparation, networking, social media utilization, and other assistance to help individuals achieve their employment goals.
“Our goal to ensure all veterans, service members, and military families find meaningful employment has just taken another step forward. This is a tremendous opportunity to partner in creating a powerful and lasting impact in the lives of many Chicago-area veterans and military families, and we look forward to being a stable presence for Chicagoland’s deserving military-connected population for years to come,” said OJRV Executive Director Gene Anderson.
