COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - U.S. Tim Scott wants to help some South Carolina veterans get prepared for jobs in the civilian world.

This week, the Republican is putting on a series of workshops he hopes will help veterans learn how to properly showcase the skills they learned in the military when applying for civilian jobs.

Scott says many military members have very marketable skills but are unsure how they’ll fit into civilian jobs.

Scott’s events began on Monday with a workshop in Columbia. Other sessions are scheduled throughout this week in Myrtle Beach, Greer and North Charleston.

More sessions anticipated for December and January will be focused on teaching veterans about available educational and entrepreneurial resources, as well as resume writing and interviewing skills. Job fairs for veterans are planned for early next year.
