Agencies Help Local Veterans Find Work

Service agencies are collaborating to help veterans transition into the workplace.

Saturday at the DoubleTree, the Veteran Career Basic Training Project was hosted by several organizations including the Southern Tier Veteran Support Group. The free workshop provided career transition coaching to vets and their families. Experienced employment specialists helped identify what employers are looking for and how to transition military skills to nonmilitary employment.

"Overall, we help them figure out the wording of what they actually did. And we break down their military jobs and show all of the skills that they needed to do, to be successful in that, and be able to show how they could bring that into our civilian community," said Co-Organizer for Veterans Career Transition Workshop Jodi Ihnotic.

Organizers say they plan to hold another workshop in January.
