Veterans are VIPs at Goodwill of Southern Nevada Hiring Event, TODAY - Nov. 5
Goodwill of Southern Nevada
, in collaboration with the City of Las Vegas, will hold a hiring event at the East Las Vegas Community Center, located at 250 N. Eastern Ave., TODAY Wednesday, November 5, 2014 where veterans will receive VIP entrance into the event. 

This pre-Veterans Day hiring event, sponsored by Barrick Gold, is an extension of Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s Veteran Integration Program, or VIP. Since its inception in 2012, Goodwill’s VIP has helped nearly 500 veterans and immediate family members secure employment in Southern Nevada.

Although veterans posses many valuable employment skills such as leadership, teamwork, self-discipline and a great work ethic, many returning service members have trouble translating their military experience into civilian terms and face other employment difficulties. Nevada consistently ranks among the top states when it comes to veterans who are unemployed.

Each of the 60+ employers attending the hiring event have open job positions they are currently hiring for. Job seekers should bring a photo ID, DD214 (or other proof of service) and current resume.

Free onsite workshops will also be held at the hiring event, including how to make a great first impression, how to prepare for an interview, and how to become a more efficient job seeker. To sign up for a workshop, please call (702) 214-1645.

TODAY, Wednesday, November 5, 2014
9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for veterans only
11 a.m. to 1 p.m. open to public
