Learn how to get in contact with qualified veterans and turn them into long-term employees; this will be a go-to resource for local employers to find hard-working, dedicated team players and leaders.

Speaker:  Dick Taylor, Exec. Director of Kern County Veterans Service
Special Guest:  Bill Roberts
Topic:  How Employers Can Find Qualified Veterans - Kern Patriot Partnership Veteran Assimilation Program

“First discussed in an interview with The Bakersfield Californian in December 2012, and again in the August 2013 issue of the Kern Business Journal, the Kern Patriot Partnership is an idea that developed out of the Kern County Veterans Service Department. Recently funded by a $250,000 grant from Chevron USA, the Kern Patriot Partnership will create an online portal to match the skills, knowledge, and dedication of our military veterans with high quality employers who need good people.
 
And no one deserves to be hired more than our nation's veterans.  Businesses cite the strengths of veterans as very appealing to them as employees.  Some of those strengths include a strong work ethic, a sense of duty, working well as a team, demonstrating self-confidence, and having the ability to follow through on assignments, even under difficult or stressful circumstances, to name a few.  A common concern among business leaders and Human Resource directors is that the current process seems to be too cumbersome or even non-existent.  The goal of the Kern Patriot Partnership is to address those issues using innovation and technology.”
