Renewed Partnership will Assist 325 Women Veterans in 2019 Through Customized Workshops and Other Services
Hire Heroes USA and The Cheryl Saban Self-Worth Foundation for Women & Girls today announced that they will continue their partnership to support women veterans and service members as they transition out of the military and into the civilian workforce. The partnership began in 2017 and has supported 134 women veterans in their job searches. The new agreement will fund five Female Veteran Empowerment Workshops and access to Hire Heroes USA’s extensive suite of services for at least 325 participants. Workshops exclusively supporting women veterans have already been held in Los Angeles, CA, Colorado Springs, CO, and Fayetteville, NC, this year; upcoming events are scheduled for San Antonio, TX, and Fort Belvoir, VA.
Participants will be able to take advantage of multiple services from Hire Heroes USA, including virtual career coaching where clients receive one-on-one assistance from individually assigned Transition Specialists. Each client is individually guided through how to create a professionally-revised resume, learn effective job search techniques, and understanding her transferable skills. A network of nearly 700 volunteer mentors will help support participants with industry-specific mentoring, mock interviews, and networking opportunities. Finally, participants will receive access to the Hire Heroes USA Job Board and training resources.
“Hire Heroes USA is grateful for the opportunity to work alongside the Cheryl Saban Self-Worth Foundation for Women and Girls to assist women veterans in finding success after service,” says Christopher Plamp, CEO of Hire Heroes USA and decorated Air Force veteran. “Through this partnership, we are working to help women veterans overcome the unique challenges they face in gaining meaningful employment.”
“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Hire Heroes USA,” said Dr. Cheryl Saban, psychologist, author, and founder of the Cheryl Saban Self-Worth Foundation for Women & Girls. “This collaboration allows us to encourage and empower female veterans as they overcome unique challenges in transitioning to civilian employment.”
Hire Heroes USA has helped more than 32,000 veterans and military spouses secure civilian jobs since being founded in 2007. In 2018, more than 2200 Hire Heroes USA clients were female veterans, of whom 1330 were confirmed hired.
