Heidrea for Heroes offers veterans first in "Success Readiness Seminar Series", September 22 in Plymouth

Heidrea for Heroes (www.heidrea4heroes.org), a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources and support to military men and women facing challenges after transitioning back to civilian life, will launch its new “Success Readiness Seminar Series” with a kickoff seminar Tuesday, September 22, on “How to Maximize the Impact of Your Interview.”

 

This first seminar is part of a series offered to veterans by Heidrea for Heroes, in partnership with Massasoit Community College, and funded in part by a $5,000 grant from Bristol County Savings Bank. Each program will focus on a specific topic to aid in workforce readiness and life skills development designed with the veteran’s perspective in mind. Massasoit Community College instructors and other industry experts will lead the programs.  The seminars are free to veterans and will rotate between the college’s main campus in Brockton, and its satellite classroom in Plymouth. This first seminar, “How to Maximize the Impact of Your Interview” will take place Sept. 22 at 71 Obery Street in Plymouth, from 6 to 8 p.m.

 

Participants will take away new knowledge, valuable tools and the camaraderie of a network of veterans who are experiencing similar challenges.

 

This first seminar will address key issues including:

·         Do you have a hard time getting ready for a job interview?

·         Is it difficult for you to answer the interview questions with confidence and assertiveness?

The workshop will teach attendees techniques and strategies to help veterans ace their interview and best leverage their military experience for the position they are seeking.

 

Jesse Brown, co-founder of Heidrea for Heroes, said, “Veterans returning to the workforce face a number of challenges, as anyone who has ever served in our military well understands. We are pleased to be able to provide this series for our fellow veterans and hope that many people will take advantage of the offering.”

 

“Massasoit Community College is pleased to partner with Heidrea for Heroes by leading several of the Success Readiness Seminars for returning veterans” said Rose Paquette, Dean of Corporate and Community Education. “We are a military-friendly school and welcome this unique opportunity to connect with area veterans by helping them enhance their work readiness skills. We look forward to a successful collaboration.”
