Join Automation Alley’s Education and Workforce Committee for the Season 2 kickoff of the “Michigan’s Got Talent” lunch ‘n’ learn event series with a seminar focused on hiring veterans, July 14, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Veterans: The Untapped Talent Pool” will include presenters who will share their expertise on creating veteran-hiring initiatives. The presentations will be followed by a Q-and-A session, lunch and networking.
“This event will help to educate the local business community about how to hire veterans and will also deliver the message that hiring veterans is a smart decision for businesses. We know that this is a highly skilled talent pool, yet veterans are often an overlooked employment population,” said Karol Friedman, Automation Alley director of talent development.
Speakers will include:
• David Dunckel, Roush Veterans Initiatives Program
• Mark Meadows, Workforce Development Agency: Veteran’s Services Division
• Herbert Thomas, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
• Mike St. John, Expetec Technology Services
