March 9, 2012 – Grantham University offers a series of complimentary webinars from the Career Services team. The series have been created to cover a variety of topics pertaining to the unique challenges in today’s job market for transitioning service members and veterans.
Shanna Fowler, career services manager, said “A common setback faced by transitioning service members is how to translate military experiences into corporate language — and how to best highlight their wide variety of skill sets for a specific position.” Many former military can easily qualify for federal employment positions but aren’t sure how to get themselves noticed by hiring managers.
Fowler went on to say “…employers have shared they’re interested in learning about recruiting best practices and challenges, and understanding how to review military experience for a civilian job description.”
