Veterans Career Summit


I'd like to invite you to join me and the Veterans' Employment & Training Service at the "10,000 Strong" Veterans Career Summit on Tuesday, July 14th. We're making great progress toward our goal of hiring 10,000 veterans in Los Angeles, but there is still more to do.

There are two ways to get involved:

1) Pre-register now for a chance to win Dodgers tickets, USC Football tickets, and other prizes when you attend the event.

2) Spread the word about the event on Facebook and on Twitter so we can reach every veteran looking for a job in Los Angeles.

Here is more information about the event:

Friends and Colleagues,

As part of Mayor Eric Garcetti's commitment to end veterans homelessness, we are partnering with Goodwill Southern California and other key partners to host a Veteran Stand Down. The Stand Down will take place on May 20, 2015 from 9 am to 5 pm at Goodwill So Cal (342 N. San Fernando Rd. LA, CA 90031). 
The Stand Down centralizes vital resources for veterans who are seeking housing, employment services, VA benefits, legal assistance, etc. A flyer with more details is attached. Please feel free to forward the invitation to your veteran networks or any interested parties! 
Thank you in advance for your support and hope to see you soon.
Warm regards, 
Joseph .
