About Hire Heroes’ Warrior Transition Workshops:
Using a combination of classroom instruction and hands on application, Hire Heroes staff and volunteers assist service members to produce outstanding resumes that accurately reflect their military accomplishments in relevant business terminology– often the most difficult part of the transition process. Additionally, members are afforded the opportunity to link up with mentors from the business and veteran community, immediately increasing their networking resources and corporate career knowledge base.
