Working as a Team

At the workshop you'll train with Todd Bermont — a job search expert, author and radio host with decades of experience helping veterans land their dream job. Mr. Bermont brings a high level of energy and passion to this lunch-hour bootcamp, all with a focus on helping you get hired.

The mission:

  • Sell your military skills to civilians
  • Avoid the gatekeepers (with LinkedIn)
  • Ace interviews and land a job

In your workshop arsenal:

  • Free lunch (for those who registered by Monday, Sept. 18)
  • A one-year subscription to The Careers College™ ($297 value) (for those who registered by Monday, Sept. 18)
  • Post-lunch networking with employers

A New Home Base

Looking for a new home base?

The list of employers attending the Veterans Employment Workshop continues to grow, including Compass Data Centers, Aligned Data Centers, Stream Data Centers.

It's Almost Time for the Workshop!

Serving Those Who Served

To meet the demands of employers, everyone needs college — not necessarily a bachelor's degree, but some college — to learn the skill sets that businesses need. And that is where the Dallas Community Colleges step in and step up, leading those efforts for the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Texas ranks No. 2 in veteran population size. And the fastest way industry can support our veterans is by employing them.

In addition to higher education that actually gets veterans hired, each of the colleges of DCCCD offers a strong sense of family and community for student veterans — a community that many students call "military friendly" thanks to their veterans services, flexible class offerings and specialized campus events.
