As service men and women return from tours of duty overseas, some will have to find new opportunities in a very competitive job market. The Employer Support of the Guard or Reserve group, or ESGR, is having a workshop for business owners and managers that will focus on the unique situation of service men and women returning from deployment, or nearing deployment. Becky Coady, Program Support Specialist for the Iowa ESGR committee says the workshop offers valuable information for employers who will, or could potentially, hire returning troops. The workshop takes place at 7:45 am Tuesday March 8th at Monarch’s on the Molengracht.
