Third Huntsville Workshop Assists Service Personnel with Their Job Search
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., May 20, 2015 – NMR Consulting (NMR), a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), hosted its third successful Military-to-Civilian (M2C) Transition Assistance Program on Tuesday, May 19, 2015. 12 veterans and transitioning service members met at NMR’s Huntsville office to receive one-on-one advice from experts on their résumés, social media profiles, and interviewing skills.
NMR, an information technology and program management company, created the M2C Program two years ago. Workshops are held throughout the year in both the Washington Capital Region and Huntsville, Ala. Since its founding, more than 75 veterans and transitioning service members have participated. “The workshop with all the insights and…tips was truly inspiring, and I did learn a lot. You turned me into a ‘new’ job seeker,” said one of the May 19 participants.
The May 19 event was hosted in partnership with Still Serving Veterans, a well-known Huntsville-based non-profit that empowers veterans and their families to optimally transition into post military lives.
