When you leave the military, the biggest question is "what's next?" It's a scary job market right now, but the skills you've received in the military make you highly marketable. The Legion sponsors dozens of veterans hiring fairs each year, and our employment experts also provide tips to writing resumes, networking and making a strong impression in the interview process.
As veteran-owned small business operators well know, federal government business practices are unique and not altogether “user friendly.” In order to take advantage of the preferential treatment given to military veteran entrepreneurs in the awarding of government contracts, business owners need to know how to navigate the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and understand the bids announcements and solicitation processes (Requests for Proposals or RFPs).
To impart this knowledge, a free three-hour workshop, “Understanding the Federal Government Acquisition Process”, is being offered in California this month by the Southwest Veterans’ Business Resource Center and the Riverside Community College-sponsored Procurement Assistance Center.
The seminar is Jan. 18 from 9 a.m.-noon at the Perris Valley Chamber of Commerce and Municipal Court Building, 227 N D Street, in Perris, which is located 70 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
