A career summit called “Hiring Our Heroes” — sponsored by the the Marine Corps Community Services Lejeune-New River Transition Assistance Program and U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation — is slated to take place Thursday in Jacksonville.
Scheduled Apr. 21, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., at the Marston Pavilion banquet hall on base, the event will inform, stimulate, and link military members and families (veterans included) to military-ready employers. Employers will be ready to interview and hire future employees. Some of America’s largest employers, as well as small companies within the region, will be in attendance.
The event also will offer career planning, digital networking and other workshops to prepare potential employees with LinkedIn, resume writing, and interviewing experience.
This career summit helps current military and service members transition into the career world outside of the military. Those who are planning to stay in the military will be able to learn how to make connections and understand opportunities that could benefit them and their families.
Pre-registration is available here for those authorized to attend. More information can be found at MCCS Lejeune-New River Events.
