The employment workshop consisted of a classroom session beginning at 9:30 AM followed by GE's own veteran employees conducting one-on-one mentoring sessions with all pre-registered participants. Mentoring sessions focused on resume building, resume writing, and interviewing techniques for all job-seeking veteran and service member participants.
Interested candidates must have completed the FREE electronic pre-registration in order to participate. A maximum of 50 participants were accepted for the full workshop. Once the pre-registered candidates had their coaching sessions, the opportunity was available for “walk ins” to have a coaching session through the end of the fair.
