Resume Building and Job Leads Brochure was created as a Capstone project to address the ongoing problem of homeless veterans in Monterey County not being unemployed. These former military members are not able to provide for themselves with a stable income in the civilian world. The project was approved by Bobby Merritt of the Marina, California Veterans Transition Center (VTC). The formatting for this project was a brochure, also known as a pamphlet, which catered to the needs of veterans experiencing homelessness who were aiming to gain employment. The brochure includes information on how to improve written resumes, key points on what employers are seeking in new hires, a list of agencies that focus on veterans in search of employment, along with other resources. The assessment plan was to supply brochures to as many veterans as possible at the VTC. Expected outcomes for the number of veterans reached by the brochure was about 50% of those enrolled at the VTC. Of the 100 people at the VTC, 75 participants received the brochures. The results were better than expected in numbers. A survey was also conducted and brochure users were very pleased.
