VEI’s quarterly VETWORKING program provides transitioning military members, Veterans and their spouses with career education and personal growth experiences necessary to succeed in gaining civilian employment. VETWORKING is a personal and professional development program which combines elements of networking, mentoring and connects the job seeker to a support team in Greater Washington’s business sector. Through small group interactions, VETWORKING facilitates the development of career search skills, building professional networks and empowerment through the support of fellow job seekers and professional mentors. Attendees will receive resume and interview coaching, be able to build their networks and participate in interviews with recruiters from the region’s top tech companies.

VEI Recruiting Days/Military District of Washington Veteran Employment Transition Summits

The NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative partners with the Military District of Washington (MDW), Virginia Department of Veterans Services, the Virginia Employment Commission and other local veteran support organizations and workforce investment boards to host recruiting events to match Veteran-friendly companies with Veteran and military spouse job seekers. Unlike a traditional job fairs where candidates circulate to employer tables, our events are uniquely designed to personally connect with small groups of Veterans in a round-robin format.  During these events, recruiters present their companies and job openings directly to the jobseekers in 15 minute “sit down” sessions allowing employers ask  candidates about their personal qualifications and interest in specific positions. The format also provides great insight and mentoring for the job seeking Veteran – many of whom have never had a formal civilian job interview.
