Veteran Career Transition Basic Training Offered to Local Veterans and Families

Workshop hosted by DoubleTree by Hilton Binghamton on January 23, 2016

(Binghamton, NY) Several local agencies are partnering together to host a free career transition workshop for local Veterans and their family members to be held on Saturday, January 23, 2016 from 10:00am to 3:00pm at the DoubleTree by Hilton Binghamton.


Part II of the Veteran Career Transition Basic Training is a project of the Southern Tier Veteran Support Group, The Wedge Group, Inc, and the STOP-DWI Returning Warrior 10 & 5-Miler, held to provide free career transition coaching to Veterans and their families by experienced employment specials


“It doesn’t matter if you’re active duty, reserve, National Guard, recently discharged or served 20 years ago. If you would like to find a better career for yourself or a family member, this workshop is for you,” said Broome County Executive Debbie Preston.


The event is open to Veterans of all ages and their family members. If a Veteran is unable to attend, family members are encouraged to attend on their behalf to help the transition when the time comes. Lunch will be provided by the DoubleTree by Hilton Binghamton.


Employment specialists will help identify what civilian employers are looking for from job applicants with military service by focusing on translating military skills to civilian employment, writing effective resumes and cover letters, interview skills, and networking ideas.


Registration is available online at by clicking on the Veterans link.


The event is sponsored by Broome County, the DoubleTree by Hilton Binghamton, the Southern Tier Veterans Support Group, The Wedge Group, and the Downtown Binghamton Vet Center
