DAYTON — Military Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) invites all veterans looking for a new career to attend the Veterans Career Assistance Program (VCAP) on Thursday, May 1.
This career workshop will take place at the Dayton Volunteers of America (VOA) office, which is located on the Dayton VA Medical Center Campus at 4100 West Third St., Building 400. It will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and lunch will be provided.
The VCAP is an interactive workshop that will improve veterans’ job-search skills. MVRC career specialists will lead the workshop and will provide individual career assessments, teach cover letter and resume writing, and conduct mock interviews. If veterans have a resume, they should bring it, as they will spend time revising their current resume or writing a new one.
The VCAP is a group workshop, but veterans will receive individualized attention from MVRC career specialists. The specialists will work with veterans one-on-one to address their questions and help make sure they are better prepared for their job search.
Seating is limited to 12 people, but walk-ins may be accepted depending on space. Register now to be sure of a seat. The sign-up sheet is posted in Building 400 of the Dayton VOA, or call MVRC career specialist Kelley Koons at 937-329-9559 to reserve a seat.
Military Veterans Resource Center is a non-profit organization that provides personalized career services to veterans who served honorably. MVRC works with veterans one-on-one to identify the obstacles preventing them from gaining employment and equips them with resources to help them overcome those obstacles. These resources include job-readiness coaching, skills training, counseling, or supportive services and may be accessed through MVRC or through partnerships with veterans’ service organizations, private social service agencies, and/or state and federal agencies.
