To provide tools and resources on how to best serve and assist veterans, the National Veterans Training Institute (NVTI) has created a six-module, no cost, eLearning tool called "Preparing Veterans for Meaningful Careers" (PVMC). Registration is required. PVMC eLearning course: Basic "Welcome" information: Topics areas and descriptions are: Meet Your Veteran: Learn which AJC staff serves veterans, the different ranks and branches of service, and your role in helping veterans. Upon completion, you'll have a better understanding of the environment veterans come from which will enable you to assist them in their job search. Transferable Skills and Credentialing: Military service members come out of the military with a wide range of valuable skills. You will learn to translate those skills for a private sector job search. Resumes: Transitioning service members and veterans often experience difficulty with translating their skills and experience when writing a resume. This module will help you assist them in writing a more effective resume which will get results? More interviews. Interview: Employment interviews can make or break any candidates' opportunity to get the job. Veterans' experience with job interviews may be limited or non-existent. This module will help you learn ways to best build and improve veterans' interviewing skills and employment chances. Disability Awareness & Resources: Some veterans will leave military service with disabilities. Learn how to assist and guide veterans with disabilities through their individual circumstances as they make career decisions. Federal Laws & Programs: In this module we will discuss four specific federal programs or laws which may affect you and the veterans you serve.
