“Military men and women are often celebrated for their leadership, team-building, organizational commitment, decision-making skills and advanced technical training skills,” says Denise Gredler, founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ. “Our goal is to bring together top hiring companies, veteran resource groups and actively connect hundreds of qualified veterans with top-notch career opportunities.”
Free career skills workshops from local nonprofit Career Connectors are available to job seekers in advance of the event, now through February. Specialists will be available to assist those with military backgrounds in translating their skill sets into resumes that easily can be understood by non-military recruiters.
