Transition from enlisted military life to civilian life can be difficult for many reasons, not the least of which is finding work after being discharged. Oftentimes, one of the biggest challenges can be translating military service and work into civilian or private sector career.

That's why Davenport University wants to help veterans with their job search.  On Monday, Feb. 17, the Career Service and Military Support teams at Davenport are offering a resume workshop for veterans, military personnel and their spouses.  The workshops are FREE and will take place on ALL Davenport University campus locations.

At each location, staff from Davenport University's Career Services team will be assisting veterans with translating their military experience into a professional resume suitable for public and private industries.  Veterans will also learn how to use their updated resumes as an “interview script” and how to show decision makers that military experience translates well into the workplace.

If you plan on using this service (or you know a veteran who may want to attend), bring copies of your current resume, any OERs, NCOERs, FITREPs or other reviews, DD214 and information on any awards or commendations.

Remember, the workshops are FREE and happen Monday the Davenport University Lettinga Campus, 6191 Kraft Avenue SE in Caledonia.
