Senator Tim Scott announced the launch of a statewide Veterans Job Training Initiative he will host in Greer next Wednesday at City Hall.

The targeted workshops for veterans will also be held in Columbia, Myrtle Beach, and North Charleston and focus on how veterans can transfer their military skills and certifications to the civilian world.

“I am proud to launch my Veterans Job Training Initiative because I know that each veteran can contribute their diverse skills and talent to our workforce following their service to our country,” said Scott.  “Through these workshops and job and resource fairs, I plan to help connect our veterans to resources and job opportunities and South Carolina’s employers to a talented pool of highly motivated potential employees.

"We owe our veterans and their families not just our thanks, but our commitment to assisting their transition from military service back into the civilian workplace.  I encourage any South Carolinian veteran looking to explore new employment opportunities and grow their skills to attend one of the workshops or one of the job and resource fairs early next year."

Additional workshops will be held in December and January on "Available Educational & Entrepreneurial Resources" and "Resume Writing and Interviewing Skills and a Hiring Manager’s Panel."

He also plans to host veteran job and resource fairs in early 2015.
