Two Idaho Department of Labor economists, Matthew Paskash and Ryan Whitesides, will present labor market information on the state’s veteran population and desirable workforce traits of veterans at a free webinar, Tuesday, Sept. 12.
“Veterans entering the civilian workforce will face challenges applying certain skills they acquired while in the armed services. But they also are well-equipped in other skills that are sought by employers including many soft skills like leadership, teamwork, time management and a strong work ethic,” Paskash said.
The webinar will also include a presentation from Labor’s veteran representative Denise Spring about the department’s veteran and employer services.
The presentation will take place Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon (MDT) via Zoom.
