Home Depot workshop designed to help veterans, coming to Pelham

Posted: Updated:

The Home Depot is starting a new program named "Mission: Transition," with the goal of arming U.S. service men and women with the knowledge and resources they need to successfully transition into the civilian workforce.  The effort will concentrate on assisting the military community with job search strategies and tools for today's challenging employment market.

This program will directly affect local veterans when The Home Depot store, located at 3191 Pelham Parkway, hosts a Civilian Workshop on Saturday, October 27, 2012. 

All those interested in attending must PRE- REGISTER online for the three hour event. 

Military personnel can go to www.careers.homedepot.com/military to register.

"Members of the United States military are great assets to America's workforce, yet the outstanding skills they possess can be difficult to translate during the application or interview process," said Tim Crow, The Home Depot EVP – Human Resources. "Through Mission: Transition, we want to help service men and women highlight their unique skills to successfully pursue opportunities with any employer, not just The Home Depot."

Space is limited, but workshops are open to any member of the military or veteran transitioning to a civilian career.
