Get ready, get hired: Join CalVet at our next women veterans benefits and employment workshop

“Graciela had a great presentation.”

“Excellent workshop. I’ll be sharing it with my friends.”


Air Force veteran and award-winning author Graciela Tiscareno-Sato.

The feedback from the first of many women veterans employment benefits workshops has been stellar. In partnership with Veterans Connect at the Library, CalTAP and the CalVet Women Veterans Division, these workshops have helped women veterans in California find the tools needed to gain employment and discover benefits that may be available to them due to their service.

The results are clear:

“I am very satisfied with the information presented. I didn’t know about these state benefits offered. I am very pleased and planning to utilize LEAP, Vets ranking, and disability leave.”

Not only are veterans learning about benefits in the workplace, but these workshops provide guidance on resume writing, job searches and job interview skills through guest speakers, employers, and community partners.

You can join the next workshop on Wednesday, April 25th at the Pleasanton Public Library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This upcoming workshop will feature an engaging, dynamic presentation on “Authentic Personal Branding for Military Veterans” from Air Force veteran and award-winning author, Graciela Tiscareno-Sato. During this highly interactive workshop, veterans learn key self-marketing skills and how to draw from their military experiences to create a personal statement about themselves. Graciela also gives tips on informational interviews and developing mentor networks. For more information about Graciela, visit:
