After seeing this segment (see below) on the Daily Show, my business partner and I decided we wanted to volunteer our time to helping returning vets tailor their resume to reflect civilian terminology . I have searched for and reached out to countless agencies/groups that supposedly help local (Los Angeles) veterans re-enter the workforce, and have not to receive a single reply.
We prefer to go local, so we can meet people, but we are also fine with other agencies that are nationally focused. If anyone knows of such an organization where we can donate our time, I would appreciate the information.
Have you thought about a more grassroots approach? Maybe you can go to your local Armory and see if you can conduct a seminar. Partner with your local houses of worships and have them target vets to come out and hear your presentation. Perhaps even renting a room at a local VFW, church, etc. and advertise your service/seminar within your community.
Janine, have you contacted Hire Heroes and/or VetNetHQ? One of the great things about Hire Heroes is that they care constantly looking for partnerships and additional resources to provide for vets. Even if your ultimate focus is to be local and grass roots, maybe start with those who have already done some of the leg work in uncovering those resources. Brian Stann is a spokesperson for and strong supporter of Hire Heroes. Look him up on Google+, and whily you are there check out VetNet HQ. While not not necessarily local, they are grass roots and would likely be eager to help. Good luck.
Thanks to you all!
