New in 2013! Veterans Career Hiring Event

ASSOCIATION OF THE UNITED STATES ARMY (AUSA) AND AMERICAN FREEDOM FOUNDATION PARTNER TO CREATE UNIQUE HIRING EVENT FOR VETERANS AT 2013 AUSA ANNUAL MEETING AND EXPOSITION

Warriors To The Workforce first time event to be held October 21 – 23, 2013 at largest military conference in North America

Washington, DC – (August 6, 2013) The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) has partnered with the American Freedom Foundation to create the first ever Warriors To The Workforce Hiring Event for veterans held in conjunction with the AUSA 2014 Annual Meeting and Exposition. This one-of-a-kind event, to be held October 21 – 23, 2013 at the Washington Convention Center, is part of the American Freedom Foundation’s nationwide initiative to help veterans find jobs. The event brings together major companies from throughout the country to profile their services and provide employment opportunities for our veterans. Attending veterans have the chance to talk with employers, submit qualifications and even participate in job interviews on the spot.

Warriors To The Workforce is unique in that it will include virtual capabilities so that all of the participating employers will be able to virtually connect with veterans and transitioning military service members throughout the country. The American Freedom Foundation will vet out resumes and match those qualified veterans and transitioning military service members with employers with specific job descriptions.

In addition to the hiring opportunities, Warriors To The Workforce will include a variety of workshops for veterans each day providing resources and information on subjects such as mental readiness, confidence building, networking and presentation skills, resume writing, interviewing techniques, job searching, career planning through goal setting, translating military skills and training into civilian life and corporate experience, among others.

The Army, according to a spokesman, will also offer special presentations at an “Army Forum” located in close proximity to the Army exhibit in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

The Army Forum will feature 45-minute discussions focusing on topics addressing subject-matter areas of prime importance to the Army and the general public.

Described by the Army as “a valuable platform for communicating Army strategic themes and messages, and a unique professional development opportunity for soldiers and civilians,” the Association’s Annual Meeting will also feature military and civilian speakers to include: Secretary of the Army John H. McHugh (invited); Gen. Ray Odierno, Army chief of staff, (invited); the former secretary of defense, Robert Gates (Marshall Medal recipient); and Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler.
