Topics to be covered include resume writing, how to translate military experience into civilian terminology, the job search with guidance on strategic networking and interviewing techniques, and tips on connecting with companies who want to hire veterans. The workshop takes place at the Goodwill Veterans Services Program headquarters on Lockwood Ridge Road Thursday, August 3 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Attire is business casual.
