At the CareerSource Research Coast office in Vero Beach, a recent seminar for veterans launched the beginning of “Operation Employment,” a series of workshops which will be taking place every other month at local workforce centers.

Opportunities such as career planning, research, workshops, one-on-one job counseling assistance, help with resume building, interview preparation, training and more were offered to local unemployed veterans.

The series of upcoming workshops is a recruitment tool to support any veteran who resides in Indian River, Martin or St. Lucie County.

Community partners and hiring employers will continue to collaborate with the agency to provide these much-needed workshops for veterans.

“We have a veterans department at the Career Source, and it just comes out of what we do. Today, our focus is to ensure we support them and assist them in getting them back to work,” said Career Source Account Manager Carolyn Thorton Nelson.
