With the opening of the Waste Management Phoenix Open just literally days away we wanted to give a shout out to our vets, first responders and active military about an event created just for you. BestCompaniesAZ, Waste Management Phoenix Open, and Birdies for the Brave have developed an event to kick-start the Phoenix Open and they have invited thirty of Arizona’s award winning companies to convene in Scottsdale at Monterra at WestWorld for a one day event on Monday January 26th that just may jump start your next career.
Stressed out at the thought of an interview? Need a winning resume or on-line presence?
Whether you are still working on your resume or just plain overwhelmed around the process of interviewing, the pre-event workshops focus on getting you through this process with onsite veteran support services to help you land the big one. Invaluable information that will give you a leg-up on your competition will be the focus of these pre-event workshops which start at 11:00 am.
The real event tees off at 1:00 pm with the official welcome at 2:00 pm by BestCompaniesAZ, Waste Management and Birdies for the Brave. Starting at 2:30 pm and continuing every 30 minutes will be presentations or panel discussions with 3-5 different VIP companies so you can take a good look at where you might want to land the perfect career. You will leave the career event inspired, or maybe even with a new job, when vets share their personal stories of how they have settled into civilian work and have found their niche.

- Charles Schwab
