The past two months have been very busy for Vocamotive and our staff of dedicated career development, resume writing, and vocational rehabilitation professionals. In addition to writing resumes and providing employment assistance to individuals in 13 different states, our team has been traveling near and far to provide career guidance, attend training events, administer consultations, and exhibit at professional events around the country.
Let’s take a look at some of the stops Vocamotive has taken along the way:
NRWA Annual Conference – Annapolis, MD
Vocamotive’s resume writing experts (Adam Zajac and Brittney Beck) traveled to the National Résumé Writers’ Association annual conference in Maryland in September to receive training in the most effective resume and LinkedIn profile writing techniques.
They also had a little fun networking with other resume writing professionals while sailing on Chesapeake Bay!
Assisting U.S. Military Veterans in Alaska
And from the East Coast to the opposite end of the country…
Lisa Helma, one of Vocamotive’s Certified Rehabilitation Counselors, traveled by aircraft large and (very) small in order to provide her expertise and guidance to our nation’s veterans in towns throughout Alaska in September.
The Vocamotive team has always prided our commitment to supporting the VA and the career transition period for US Veterans.
