NVTAC Announces New VLC on Employer Engagement
December 1, 2017 – Today the National Veterans Technical Assistance Center announced the availability of EMPLOYER ENGAGEMENT, a new virtual learning course for HVRP staff. The course will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:15pm to 4:30pm (eastern time) for four weeks starting January 8, 2018. “It is increasingly important for HVRP staff to develop relationships with employers for a number of reasons. HVRPs need to address employer reluctance to hire veterans with multiple challenges; staff need to understand the employer’s business processes in order to add value in solving hiring issues; and to insure the best possible matches between the job seeker and the employer” says NVTAC’s Co-Director, John Rio. Participants will learn about a creative strategy to connect with employers and have an opportunity to practice these skills in class. There is no cost to participants and those completing 70% of the classes will receive a Certificate of Completion.
