Veterans – you served our nation in the Armed Forces, now let Nassau County and North Shore-LIJ (NSLIJ) serve you – with an opportunity to land one of the more than 1,500 available jobs throughout the NSLIJ health systems.
County Executive Ed Mangano and the Nassau Veterans Services Agency are hosting a free workshop this week, to help veterans translate their invaluable military skills, into civilian work experience, on a resume – in order to fill one of the open positions. The positions are in clinical and nonclinical fields such as: Administration, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Strategic Planning, Public Relations, Logistic, Project Management and nursing.
The Barracks to Business workshop is an initiative of the Office of Military and Veterans Liaison Services at North Shore health systems, which is the largest private employer in New York State, with a workforce of 54,000 employees. NSHS was named a 2015 Military-Friendly Employer and is a member of Nassau County’s Welcome Back Warriors Program
Veteran employment recruitment specialists will show Veterans how to design a resume to meet the open jobs’ requirements, provide tips on what to say at the job interviews, and demonstrate how to apply online for desired positions.
The free workshop will be held in the Ceremonial Chambers of the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola, on Thursday Oct. 8 from 9:30 – 12 noon. You must pre-register
