A Bittersweet Reflection on the 2015 AZILG Conference

A Bittersweet Reflection on the 2015 AZILG Conference

The Expected and Unexpected at AZILG

Another AZILG conference has successfully ended and left its audience with more knowledge and connections than when it began. As one of our favorite conferences to attend, the AZILG committee truly poured their heart and souls into the planning, preparation, and careful consideration of each session. Attendees gained great insight in the proposed Equal Pay Report, compensation, Section 503 and VEVRAA effects, and transgender etiquette. It was quite an eclectic group of topics that elicited a whole gamete of discussions. For example, as the topic of transgender is trending and getting national spotlight, one of the session's discussed the proper terminology and etiquette to support transgender colleagues in the workplace. Many of the terms had not been identified before to the audience, so it turned out to be quite educational and filled with inquisitive hand raises for our speakers.

SourceCast Surprises a Local Veteran Hiring Event

SourceCast Surprises a Local Veteran Hiring Event

Sharing in the Support for our Veterans

SourceCast was fortunate enough to attend our local Alexandria Workforce Center's hiring event on Wednesday! With Veterans Day around the corner, we were reminded of the support and dedication we wish to share for all those who have so courageously served this country. These individuals have given so much to us, so what an honor it was to shake some of the hands of this country's true heroes. Not only did we meet some of our local heroes, but we were able to witness the wonderful work of our local veteran employment center representatives. These recruiters work so diligently and passionately to help our veterans find employment day in and day out. They are dedicated in giving back by feverishly aligning opportunities with pre-qualified candidates. The fact that our veterans are given such white-glove service, whether it's pre-qualifying, military skill translating, or interview training, is truly an inspiring process to witness. We were so lucky to visit with the center in order to really stay abreast to the needs of our local career centers and to our veteran job seekers. The best kind of knowledge is knowledge that comes from our experiences, and SourceCast truly gained some great knowledge through our hands-on experience. What a wonderful way to kick-start our Veterans Day commemorating and celebrations.
