Description: The San Francisco Fleet Week Association in partnership with Military.com and Vets In Tech, will be hosting a Veterans Summit at the Marines Memorial Club, 609 Sutter St, San Francisco, on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015.
“Military.com is proud to support the San Francisco Fleet Week Association’s Veteran Employment Summit. The event will give Bay Area employers the opportunity to learn how veteran hiring programs have helped companies of all sizes successfully recruit and retain veteran talent. In addition, local employers will get to meet one-on-one with veterans and servicemembers to see their great potential, firsthand,” said Terry Howell, Military.com.
The event will offer two separate opportunities for Veterans and transitioning military members.
All participants will be invited to attend a networking lunch with HR personnel and corporate recruiters following the classroom sessions.
Three separate workshops will be offered:
– Resume Workshop. Participants will be briefed on resume basics, how to put together a working resume, what it should/should not include, how to communicate your skill set on paper. Instructor: Brandon Macias from LinkedIn
– Interview Skills and “Secrets from the Inside”. An interactive class where participants will review interview basics, and learn some insider tips from a former hiring manager on how to nail the interview. Instructor: Chris Galy from Auction.net
– Networking and Entrepreneurship. Starting your own business, creating a business plan, finding investors, how you bring your vision to life and what to realistically expect. Plus advice on how to build your network of contacts, connecting, building, and using this network to move forward. Instructor: Tom Anderson, J.D.
A career fair, open to all, will follow the networking lunch.
