Employment & Training

The NECHV provides programs in career, vocational and entrepreneurship education and training to obtain and retain employment in today’s competitive market. The Center also offers a robust program of life skills training courses including: personal financial planning, individualized budget and credit review, employment readiness, resume creation, money management and computer fundamentals.

Vocational training is an important part of the program and each Veteran is assessed for his or her readiness for employment. Staff is available to assist with job searches, resume writing, job orientation, training and retention, work responsibilities and job issues. Group and individual employment counseling is designed to assess vocational interests and skills, develop realistic employment goals and internship placement before moving on to paid employment.

Staff provides customized support for Veteran students, connecting them to community resources and reducing barriers as Veterans work toward their short- and long-term goals. From entry-level job-seekers to those looking to re-establish a career, all Veteran students are encouraged to work with the staff to develop a personalized, sustainable career path plan.
