Upskilling Our Veterans
Goodwill San Antonio's Veterans Services Team Achieves Career Coaching Certification
(SAN ANTONIO - November 5, 2019) Goodwill San Antonio's Good Career Specialists are dedicated to serving our veterans and their families as they transition into the civilian workplace. The Veterans Services team offers individualized, tailored programs to meet each person's unique needs and goals. These career services are offered at no cost to transitioning service members, veterans and families including: employer connections, resume development, financial planning, interview strategies, job search assistance, and career coaching among others.
Our Veterans Services team strives to meet the needs of veterans with the most up-to-date skills and strategies to effectively navigate the 21st century workforce. Career Coaching courses through Skilling America provided them with a formal, uniformed training to improve service delivery models by training them to utilize labor market demands while providing quality employment opportunities to those we serve and their families.
These courses will help our team establish and sustain productive career coaching relationships with our clients, identify competencies aligned to their interests, and utilize measurement tools that reference relevant and useful market data.
The training certification knowledge our team gained is further useful when working with all Goodwill San Antonio clients. However, this significantly impacts veterans who employ our services to strive for higher pay wages. Utilizing labor market reports during career counseling is critical to achieving that goal. Upskilling of our team is a path to better serving our veterans and their families in a consistent manner. While each client is unique in their career goals, the mission is the same - helping them seek permanent meaningful employment to support themselves and their families.
