On Wednesday, Nov. 20, Snohomish County Fire District 1 and Operation Military Family are teaming up to train, educate and position veterans and their spouses on how to better compete in today’s job market – and for some, potentially get hired with Fire District 1.
The event, Operation Career Boost, is a one-day workshop for transitioning or recently transitioned service members on how to gain the competitive advantage in landing their next career. Taught by Transition Specialists and Snohomish County Fire District 1, those who attend will walk away knowing how to present themselves, what hiring managers look for during an interview, and how to fast-track their way to a successful “next-stage” career.
The event is designed specifically for transitioning Service members, Veterans, and their spouses.
Registration is required. The event is free but limited to only 50 individuals and will take place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. this Wednesday at Snohomish County Fire District 1
Administrative Headquarters and Training Center, 12425 Meridian Ave., Everett.
Register online or call 425-551-1200.
