ICMA is seeking volunteers to develop one of a series of handbooks to help military veterans transition to careers in local government. Part of the resource (or resources) would be materials for current veterans and active duty military entering transition to civilian life to help them explore local government and local government management, positioning their transferrable skills to compete for positions; and how to research, apply for, and interview for local government jobs.
A second component of the resource(s) would be directed specifically to human resources staff within local governments on identifying the military skillsets and how those translate to local government. Human resources has been identified by current veterans seeking employment in local government as a barrier to entering the profession. Submit inquiries of interest to participate to Samantha Ferrigno at sferrigno@ICMA.org by December 15, 2017.
