​Are You a Veteran? Do You Know Any Veterans Looking for a Job?

Look no further! On behalf of HR Tampa's Workforce Readiness Committee, we would like to introduce you to Veteran Initiative 2015!


Comprised of veteran-friendly organizations, employer groups and HR professionals, this initiative is posed to assist transitioning veterans with resume design, interview protocols, skills translations and mock name a few. 


Given the vast array of information available to veterans, along with increased transfers out of their military career, this "one stop shop" opportunity brings to the table subject matter experts in the field of human resources that promises to provide a grass roots approach to their transition.
