Home Depot Civilian Career Workshop

As part of our strong, ongoing commitment to America's military, The Home Depot is proud to announce a special one-day event across the nation: Mission:Transition.

Unlike a job fair, these Civilian Career Workshops focus on helping service members and veterans transition successfully into the workforce in any industry. With service at the center of our core values, we are proud to arm service men and women with knowledge and resources to navigate a successful transition into a meaningful career. It is our goal to serve the military community.

Register to participate in our October 27, 2012 Mission:Transition event and hear directly from hiring managers, human resources professionals and former military leaders currently working at The Home Depot. Attendees will learn:
