USC aims to link US veterans with job openings

Veterans on a mission
More than 200,000 of those who served in Afghanistan and Iraq are believed to be out of work.

The unemployment rate for U.S. veterans has been dropping, but at about 10 percent, it’s still about two percentage points above the national average. USC hopes its upcoming hiring event will make a difference for local veterans looking for work.

The “Serving Those Who Have Served” event at USC on March 20 will offer veterans a chance to interview with employers for specific job openings that may match veterans’ skills.

For veterans who wish to email their resume in advance, the deadline is March 9.

Veterans and employers can also participate in educational workshops. USC’s Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans & Military Families, part of the USC School of Social Work, will provide workshops on veterans’ training and experience and how to translate those experiences into a business setting.

The career event is a partnership among the School of Social Work, USC’s Talent Management Department, the USC Office of Equity and Diversity and the U.S. Department of Labor.

Event details and registration are available through USC Talent Management online.
