St. Philip’s College is providing “10 Steps to Getting Hired for Veterans and Their Families,” a series of three monthly workshops April through June for veterans transitioning into the civilian workforce.

The first seminar is 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. April 29 in the Morgan Gallery, Room 100 of Watson Fine Arts Center.

Good Samaritan Veterans Outreach and Transition Center partnered with Confidential Government Solutions and Grand Canyon University to offer the workshop series for veterans and their families, including spouses and children for no cost.

To attend, all participants must sign up at www.eventbrite.com/event/16405467194.

The first workshop will include steps 1 through 3 on getting hired, phone etiquette, computer skills and more. Veterans also will learn interviewing tips.

Tim Stanford, director of Good Samaritan Veterans Outreach and Transition Center, said this is a great way to get them to the next level.

There will be between five and 10 employers, a Q-and-A panel discussion and mock interviews. The workshop will “provide (veterans) with skills to get you the job you want,” Stanford said.

The next seminar will be May 26 to introduce steps 4 through 7, and the June 24 seminar will present the last three steps. Other steps entail how social media can affect work life, time-saving job searches, networking tips and how to negotiate salaries. Both events also start at 8:30 a.m. in the Morgan Gallery, Room 100 of Watson Fine Arts Center.

Grand Canyon University will provide lunch. Parking is free in lots 8 and 9.
