Cincy school offers veterans job-hunting help

CINCINNATI (AP) — Veterans seeking jobs will get help communicating their abilities to potential civilian employers at a workshop in southwest Ohio.

The University of Cincinnati says the one-day workshop Saturday at the school’s Career Development Center in the University Pavilion is open to veterans from Cincinnati and the surrounding region and to their dependents.

UC says the aim is to help veterans find better ways of translating skills acquired in the military so potential employers can see how they can apply to civilian jobs. Veterans say military skills like leadership and problem-solving can also be assets in civilian workplaces. But they often have trouble knowing how to get that across to potential employers.

The workshop also will include strategies to use when seeking federal employment and tips for improving resumes.
