This was the third and largest Idaho workshop for Hire Heroes USA. Tony Torres, the Idaho Area Manager, hosted 26 veterans and spouses at the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation over two days. Day 1 included classes on interviewing, creating an elevator pitch, finalizing resumes, polishing up the LinkedIn profiles, and Dress for Success. Day 2 brought everything together when attendees did mock interviews one-on-one and in panel format. As usual, some of these interviews may have led to actual job offers. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and demand will only continue to increase as word of mouth starts to spread what Hire Heroes USA is doing here in Idaho.
Finally, the volunteer force was also strong and we want to recognize the time and support of the following:
- Men's Warehouse provided the Dress for Success class.
- Gretchen Lemay Photography provided stunning professional head shots for the LinkedIn profiles.
- HP INC came out in force and conducted panel mock interviews.
- Pacific Source provided one-on-one mock interviews.
