  • 1. Hire Heroes USA Debuts Nationwide Wounded Warrior Transition AssistanceWorkshopsHire Heroes USA’sWounded Warrior Transition Assistance Workshops (WWTAW) providecomprehensive career transition training at no cost to service members. During the 2-3 dayworkshops, HHUSA staff and volunteers teach wounded or disabled soldiers how to identifypersonal goals, formulate job search strategies, create effective resumes, and excel in jobinterviews.Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) September 28, 2010 -- Using a combination of classroom instruction and hands onapplication, HHUSA staff and volunteers assist service members to produce outstanding resumes thataccurately reflect their military accomplishments in relevant business terminology– often the most difficult partof the transition process. Additionally, service members are afforded the opportunity to link up with mentorsfrom the business and veteran community, immediately increasing their networking resources and corporatecareer knowledge base.Feedback from workshop participants has been uniformly enthusiastic. HHUSA plans to conduct WWTAWsatleast on a quarterly basis at Ft. Gordon, in Augusta, Georgia and monthly at other Wounded Warrior carecenters around the Nation, potentially reaching more than 200 wounded or disabled service members in the nextcalendar year.Successful WWTAWswere conducted during the past year at Camp Lejeune, NC; Camp Pendleton, CA; NavalMedical Center San Diego; Marine Corps Air-Ground Training Center Twentynine Palms, CA; and MarineBase Hawaii - Kaneohe Bay.These workshops signal a greater commitment from the US military to ensure its wounded and disabled servicemembers receive the best transition assistance available, leading to reduced veteran unemployment rates andsustainable, family-wage jobs. The problem of unemployed veterans is not going away anytime soon, as theunemployment rate for veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was at 14.7 percent in March 2010,higher than the national unemployment average.“We look forward to making an impact in the lives of these men and women. The skills learned in these classeswill ultimately help more of our veterans find the work they deserve after their service to our country hasended.” said Stann, a former Marine officer who was awarded the Silver Star for his bravery in Iraq. Stannimplemented this important program in the 4th quarter of FY2009.For questions about the Hire Heroes USA Wounded Warrior Transition Assistance Workshops, and all mediainquiries, please contact Allison Herbst at (678)248-8197.http://www.hireheroesusa.org/veterans/workshopsAbout Hire Heroes USA (HHUSA)PRWeb ebooks - Another online visibility tool from PRWeb
