Webinar Series for Vets, Transitioning Military and Federal Employees

Grantham University is offering 2 series of complimentary webinars by their Career Services team. The series have been created to cover a variety of topics pertaining to the unique challenges in today’s job market for transitioning service members and veterans.

Shanna Fowler, career services manager, said “A common setback faced by transitioning service members is how to translate military experiences into corporate language and how to best highlight their wide variety of skill sets for a specific position.” Many former military can easily qualify for federal employment positions but aren’t sure how to get themselves noticed by hiring managers.

Fowler went on to say “…employers have shared they’re interested in learning about recruiting best practices and challenges, and understanding how to review military experience for a civilian job description.”

Because of this interest by employers, the first series is for companies interested in hiring veterans and former military service members. These Webinars will held bi-weekly on Thursdays at 1pm CST starting March 8th. Register here: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/400442606

Transitioning service members, veterans and federal employees are invited to participate in weekly Webinars held each Tuesday at 1pm CST. Register for these Webinars here: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/330926542

    Being hired as a permanent part time employee, at 64 hours, would over time hours still apply after 40 or after 32?

      Great question, Michael.

      According to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, federal employees are covered under Title 5, Overtime Pay as follows:

      “Overtime pay provided under title 5, United States Code, is pay for hours of work officially ordered or approved in excess of 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in an administrative workweek. FLSA exempt employees, as defined in 5 U.S.C. 5541(2), who work full-time, part-time, or intermittent tours of duty are eligible for title 5 overtime pay.”

      So as long as you are ordered to work 64 hours, or your hours fluctuate but have been approved by your supervisor, you should start receiving overtime at the 40 hour mark each week.
