AUSA Winter Symposium in Huntsville features veterans’ hiring event

Saturday, February 01, 2014

The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) has partnered with the American Freedom Foundation to host the second Warriors To The Workforce Hiring Event for veterans, in conjunction with Still Serving Veterans, to be held at the 2014 AUSA Winter Symposium and Exposition.

This one-of-a-kind event, to be held Feb. 19 – 21, 2014, at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Ala., is part of the American Freedom Foundation’s nationwide initiative to help veterans find jobs.

The first event was held at the AUSA 2013 Annual Meeting and Exposition at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center was a great success according to the hundreds of veterans who participated in this new program.

The hiring event in Huntsville will also bring together major companies from throughout the country to profile their services and provide employment opportunities for veterans.

Veterans attending the Winter Symposium and Exposition have the opportunity to talk with employers, submit qualifications and even participate in job interviews on the spot.

Warriors To The Workforce is unique in that the American Freedom Foundation will vet out resumes and match those qualified veterans, transitioning military service members and spouses with employers with specific job descriptions.

In addition to the hiring event, Warriors To The Workforce will include workshops for veterans each day providing resources and information on subjects such as mental readiness, confidence building, networking and presentation skills, resume writing, interviewing techniques, job searching, career planning through goal setting, translating military skills and training into civilian life and corporate experience, among others.

Attendance at the Warriors To The Workforce Hiring Event is free and open to veterans, military service members and spouses.

The 2014 AUSA Winter Symposium and Exposition will focus on preparing the Army for an unpredictable global security environment to the year 2020 and beyond – while continuing the transition from combat operations in the U.S. Central Command Area of Responsibility.
