Federal Resume Writing and Applying for Federal Jobs (USAJOBS)


Wednesday, February 28, 2024 
2:00 - 3:00 pm (Eastern Time)

 
The mission of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is "to fulfill President Lincoln’s promise to care for those who have served in our nation’s military and for their families, caregivers, and survivors." 
 
Within the VA, the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) is one of three Administrations. The VBA helps service members transition out of military service, and assists Veterans with education, home loans, life insurance and much more. The VBA provides benefits and services to Veterans and their families in a responsive, timely and compassionate manner in recognition of their service to the nation. 
 
The VBA's goal is to attract, develop, and retain passionate, high-performing employees who are interested in making a difference, while providing generations of Veterans — and their survivors — with the care and benefits they deserve. 
 
The National Recruitment Team (NRT) is committed to branding the VBA as an employer of choice by engaging talent pools representing all segments of society. 
 
This webinar is the second in a two-part series. In this session, you will meet representatives of the VBA who will share guidance on federal resume writing and applying for federal jobs through the USAJOBS website. 
 
Topics to be covered include: 

  • Requirements of the Federal Resume 
  • Job Announcements and USAJOBS
  • Online Resources

 
Presenters
 
Douglas Miller, VBA National Recruiter 
 
Michell Aulisio, VBA National Recruiter

Advocacy in Action:
How New Legislation Will Transform Career Development

Tuesday, April 30, 2024 
1:00pm (Eastern Time)


Presented by Shelby McIntyre and Elle O'Flaherty

This webinar, led by NCDA Government Relations Committee Co-Chairs, will delve into the federal legislative process, focusing on upcoming bills and policies that have significant implications for career development. As career development professionals, staying ahead in understanding and adapting to legislative changes is paramount. The session will offer an in-depth analysis of current legislative trends and their potential impact on NCDA Members' strategies and practices. This will include not only laws related to jobs, education, and the economy, but also laws that may impact client rights/resources, such as childcare and benefits. Finally, the session will include discussion of NCDA's activity in advocating for career development in the United States and how members can play a part in those efforts on both the organizational and individual levels.
