Career Services offers job placement assistance, computer training, resume development, professional development workshops, interview preparation, and budget counseling. Veterans are interviewed by our Career Services staff to assess their individual needs. If a Veteran is able to schedule an interview, Career Services counselors provide appropriate clothing for the interview from the 12th Avenue Thrift Store (shirts, ties, suit jackets, shoes, etc). Career Services can also provide for transportation needs in the form of gas or bus cards once the interview has been verified by the Employment staff.
Once a client secures employment, an employment counselor provides them with items that will contribute to their success at a new place of employment. These items include work boots, tools and equipment, bus passes or gas cards to help with transportation, and any specialized clothing. All items are provided once employment has verified the client’s new employment.
In addition to OSDTN Career Services staff, we partner with the American Job Center of Tennessee.
We currently have six desktop computers and WiFi access for Veterans and their families to use. Veterans can use the computer lab to build or revise their resume, conduct job searches, as well as apply for jobs. If you aren’t familiar with computers or need some help, our staff will assist you with submitting resumes and applying for jobs.
