Line of Sight
2 New Programs For 2016 And Beyond
VUA will release plans on Memorial Day to initiate two new projects for the fall of 2016 in addition to our very successful Veterans
Health Benefits Seminars (VHBS), Veterans
Entrepreneurial Training Seminars (VETS), and Veterans Government Contract
(1) DoD/VA Vendor Career Fair
VA and DoD are two
of the largest purchasers of goods and service from private sector
businesses in America. Vendors who work with the DoD and VA know
better than anyone the value and the skills that veterans bring to the
table as employees, not to mention that those very same Vendors often
owe their livelyhood to the service and sacrifice of our
veterans. Partnering with the Small Business Administration and
its network of
support organizations we will bring together both Vendors and Veterans
under one roof in a day long Career Fair where veterans will be able to
(1) upgrade their careers, (2) have an initial/preliminary on the spot
interview with employers, and/or (3) learn how to enhance and improve their
resume and interviewing skills.
wounded warriors face a very real and daunting challenge as they
transition from active duty back into the private sector work
force. Make no mistake, these men and women will bring a special
skill set and an unparalelled work ethic and determination to any
employer. The hurddle they face is not skill and determination,
but finding the best possible match of potential employers for their
unique skills. We will draw on our knowledge and experience gained over the years
to construct and produce a WoundedWarriorWorking.org Career Fair
specifically tailored to veterans who have suffered loss for their
country and then persevered through to recovery.
Check back with us periodically for dates, times and locations. Info will be posted on our On the Radar page.
Public Service Announcements
Just a reminder,
we have reinstituted our national Public Service Announcement Capmpaign on
broadcast radio. We have four professionally produced
PSA's that will go out to every radio outlet in the US - two each of a
PSA on Longterm Care and free Counseling for Global War on Terror
veterans (two with music and two without music).
