Career Services for those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces

 

Career Services for those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces

The Brookhaven College Career Development Center is dedicated to meeting the special needs of each student and community member whom we serve. The CDC staff members recognize those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces that have developed a unique set of skills through extensive training and experience. We are prepared to help them convey those qualities and skills to potential future civilian employers.

We encourage former U.S. Armed Forces individuals and community members to take advantage of the following resources and benefits, which are tailored to address the employment transition from military to civilian life.

  • Résumé writing advice
  • Web resources that address transition issues and job search assistance, including listings of open positions, benefits information and more
  • Career Development Center library resources, which students formerly in the U.S. Armed Forces may check out and community members may view in the center
  • Career Web and library resources addressing employment issues of individuals with disabilities
  • Veteran's Day reception, co-hosted by the Office of Student Life, to honor those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces for their service and commitment to the country
  • Notices of career fairs directed toward active military personnel and those who have previously served
  • Mock interviews to practice interviewing skills and hear constructive feedback
