"Leave No One Behind"

Veterans Village of San Diego Job Club

At the end of Phase I of the program veterans enroll in Job Club, which is a 4-week class on how to conduct an effective job search and make a viable employment plan.

Other Job Club services include

  • Resume and cover letter writing
  • Researching potential employers
  • Mock interviews
  • Preparing references
  • Salary negotiations.

In order to graduate from Job Club, the veteran must:

  • Attend Orientation
  • Complete an Assessment Test
  • Attend all classes
  • Complete all homework assignments.

Once a veteran completes Job Club and transitions into Phase II of the program, he/she begins working with Employment and Training staff on formulating an employment plan.

The veteran attends a meeting with Employment Case Managers to discuss the employment plan, show completed orientation paperwork, all required documentation, and training information.

Upon completion of this meeting, a meeting with the Employment Director, Employment Case Manager, VRC Case Manager, and the veteran is scheduled. The veteran’s employment and training plan is reviewed, modified if necessary, and approved during the three-on-one. Upon completion of this meeting, the veteran is assigned an Employment Case Manager and is enrolled in Employment Services.

Once enrolled, the veteran gains access to services to aid him/her in enacting his/her employment plan. This includes access to the Employment Computer Lab, transportation to and from interviews, and if applicable financial assistance for trainings, license renewals, and/or suitable interview attire.

We believe intensive rehabilitation leads to self-sustaining independence,
the maximizing of human potential and a meaningful, fulfilling life.
Our veterans are worthy of nothing less.
