Responsible for business and strategic planning with RPG Consulting, Robert P. Givens previously served as a brigadier general in the US Air Force. Outside of his career duties, Robert P. Given is a longtime supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project, an aid organization for US veterans.
Volunteers of America (VOA) recently announced a joint initiative with Sodexo, an organization that improves the quality of life for millions of consumers worldwide, to roll out a platform of guides and resources aimed at veterans who are entering the private sector workforce and those who wish to increase their upward mobility within the armed services. The flagship effort of this partnership is a webinar series developed by Sodexo.
Young veterans who have served since 9/11 face an unemployment rate higher than the national average among all Americans. The partnership between VOA and Sodexo is an attempt to reverse that trend.
The webinar series will tackle topics such as career planning, networking, resume building, and interviewing. The series can be accessed via the Volunteers of America website at www.voa.org.
