The American Legion and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring Our Heroes program will team up for an employment event at this month’s Washington Conference in the nation’s capital. Veterans, military personnel and their spouses are invited to attend the event, which will take place Feb. 23 at the Washington Hilton, 1919 Connecticut Ave. NW.
An employment fair, featuring hiring managers from private corporations, and state and federal agencies will take place from 1-4 p.m. Prior to the employment fair, the Legion will provide a résumé workshop (9-10:30 a.m.), financial literacy workshop (10:30-11:30 a.m.) and networking luncheon (11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.).
The résumé workshop will focus on résumé building, networking and interviewing tips. The financial literacy workshop will include tips on managing money, creating a budget, tracking spending, paying down debt and saving for the future.
