In partnership with the Carlisle Barracks Employment Readiness and Transition Program and Military Family Programs, Hiring Our Heroes is hosting a two-day event for military spouses to include employment workshops and a networking reception.

Day one kicks off with an intimate panel discussion and Q&A addressing issues related to military spouse employment. Following the panel discussion, job seekers will learn personal branding techniques, including how to stand-out in a crowd with the perfect elevator pitch and how to build a top-notch resume with HOH & Toyota’s Career Spark tool, designed specifically for military spouses.

On day two, job seekers will learn how to utilize LinkedIn in their employment search and effectively negotiate salary and benefits with potential employers. Spouses with an entrepreneurial spirit will learn how to launch a small business or elevate an already existing company. To top it all off, job seekers are invited to participate in a networking luncheon with employers and local employment-focused organizations.

This event is open and FREE to all military spouses, employers, and service organizations. Service members and veterans are also welcome. Lunch will be provided on both days to those who register for the event.
