Free Career Counseling For Veterans Thursday At Jax City Hall

CPT Christopher Neeley

The city of Jacksonville is hosting a free career counseling seminar this afternoon for military veterans who are looking for work in the civilian job market.

Ken Johnson is the Senior Policy Advisor to the Mayor for Military Affairs.

He says even though it’s called a seminar, there’s a lot of one-on-one counseling that takes place as well.

 "What they need to do is come in and sit down and talk with somebody who can walk them through things they need to know.  If they have a resume, bring it.  We’ll critique it," he said.

"If they have a list of companies they’re applying for, we’ll find out if any of those companies are on our website and intercede, make sure the person is aware of the opportunities available."

Johnson says the city hosts a free career counseling seminar once a month as part of its Jobs-for-Vets initiative.

WHEN:  Thursday, October 17th from 3:00-6:00 p.m.

WHERE: City Hall St. James Bldg., Suite 120 (117 W Duval St. 32202)
