CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Our comprehensive employment programs assist Veterans in securing professional and financially rewarding careers.

In 2019, VLP served 363 Veterans with employment assistance. 

Leona, a United States Army Veteran, asked VLP for assistance in locating additional training and employment opportunities.  As a Licensed Practical Nurse, Leona was specifically looking for a career in the medical field.  VLP assisted Leona in editing and tailoring her resume, locating job opportunities in her area and also assisted with paying for car repairs necessary to get to and from interviews and employment opportunities.   Once offered a great career as an LPN, VLP assisted Leona with obtaining work clothing so that she could start right away.  Leona is now working in the field and area that she loves; congratulations Leona!

Mr. Simmons began working with VLP’s Employment Team when he was unemployed and looking for a full-time career.  VLP tailored and developed a professional resume with Mr. Simmons that showcased his employment history and strengths. Within days of completing his resume, Mr. Simmons applied to various jobs and VLP advocated on his behalf. In preparation for his interviews, VLP conducted mock interviews with Mr. Simmons and helped him create and practice his elevator pitch.  Mr. Simmons is now employed full-time and thriving.  Congratulations Mr. Simmons!

“I was truly blessed by finding VLP.  Their help was tremendous in reinventing myself for new employment.  Straight A’s for VLP!” 

Rikki was referred to VLP’s Employment Team in March of 2019 to receive assistance obtaining a job.  Rikki, a United States Army Veteran was on the verge of becoming homeless due to unemployment and requested career advice and training from VLP.  Alongside Rikki, VLP updated and tailored his resume and provided career and training assistance.  Rikki is now employed full-time as a General Contractor and stably housed.  Congratulations, Rikki!
