Employment Provider Collaboration Meeting
An Employment Provider Collaboration Meeting was held yesterday in the PAServes meeting room inside Pittsburgh Mercy. It was attended by people from The Heinz Endowments, Pittsburgh Mercy, Leadership Pittsburgh Inc., the Veterans Leadership Program and of course, PAServes. Various questions were discussed, such as: Where are the veterans ? Especially the post 9/11 veterans? How we reach them for employment opportunities? How do we utilize services available to outreach veterans and showcase job opportunities ? Is there a disconnect between the available jobs (intent of company to hire veterans and the actual hiring managers?
Mark Schiemer of PAServes – Greater Pittsburgh, led the discussion and showcased some of the relevant data about employment services to date from the PAServes initiative.
