Have you passed on potential clients because they were military? Does their “jargon” intimidate you?
Would you like to work with the military but don’t know where to begin? This teleseminar is an introduction
into the military world, its structure and terminology. In this teleseminar, we will:
- Look at a brief overview of the military.
- Discuss ways to screen service members as potential clients.
- Identify target needs of the military.
- Talk about special challenges and solutions to working with military members.
- Look at wording and translation (it’s not as difficult as you might think)
- Review samples of military resumes.
Working with the military in transition can be a very rewarding experience. Sign up to see how!
