FORT MYERS, Fla. - Unemployment continues to be a problem across the country. With hundreds of thousands of veterans returning home over the next four years, there will be an influx of people looking for work. Two Fort Myers businesses are joining forces to make the job search easier.
On February 9th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., vets who've returned within the last two months can stop by Wiseguys Deli at 2117 First Street. They'll get free lunch and help crafting a resume from KS Resume Writers.
"These guys should be valuable and yet they are having a hard time," Profession Career Coach with KS Resume Writers Stephen Wolfson said. "What was their job? What were they trained in? What are their skill sets? They've been standing on the front lines dodging bullets and leading troops into harm's way. If that's not leadership skills, I don't know what is."
Writing resumes and making sandwiches is what these businesses do every day. But for one day, it will be much more. "We just want to say thank you for everyone that comes in that day," Melissa Cromer of Wiseguys said. "Anyone who wants to come in and say hello and thank these veterans for their hard work and dedication in serving our country, you are always welcome."
