Sears Holdings Hosts Inaugural "Invite A Veteran To Work Day" At Headquarters, 1,800 Sears And Kmart Stores

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sears Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: SHLD) announced today that leading up to Veterans Day the company will host its inaugural "Invite A Veteran to Work Day" on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at its headquarters in Hoffman Estates, Ill., and at 1,800 Sears and Kmart stores across the U.S.  At each event Sears Holdings will honor the men and women of the armed forces, provide a rare behind-the-scenes look inside the company's operations, and share how they can transition into the civilian workforce and prepare themselves for a career with the leading integrated retailer.

"We recognize the key role the veteran community plays in the workforce as evidenced by our 30,000 veteran associates, many of whom are still serving in the National Guard and the Reserve forces," said Sherry Nolan-Schultz, vice president, talent acquisition and diversity, Sears Holdings. "We invite all veterans to join us on this unique day to learn more about our company, career opportunities and workforce re-entry strategies."

The six-hour event will feature sessions on veteran transition strategies; workshops on LinkedIn, resume development and interviewing; a campus tour; and lunch with a senior executive. The local events at the stores will enable veterans to meet with Sears and Kmart managers and associates to learn more about the company and career opportunities. Veterans are encouraged to visit the Military Talent Community at jobs.sears.com/campaign-veterantowork2013 to learn more about the program and RSVP for their preferred event as attendance is limited. 

Sears Holdings developed "Invite a Veteran to Work Day" in support of the White House's Joining Forces initiative to give service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned. The company recognizes that our nation's servicemen and women possess a unique skill set and leadership qualities difficult to find anywhere else. The knowledge and proficiencies learned in the service has helped military veterans transition into positions involving a wide range of industry disciplines such as logistics, store management, loss prevention and home services.
