‘Word Lab’ business reaches out to unemployed vets

According to news reports, the nation’s 9 percent of unemployed adults include nearly a quarter of a million jobless veterans.

Creative Word Lab, a business in the Snoqualmie Valley, is offering unemployed vets job searching help.

“We can help their resumes and cover letters translate the military jargon into corporate speak,” said Casondra Brewster, Creative Word Lab’s owner. “As a vet myself, I’ve walked in both worlds. I can assist them in applying the advantage of military service... .the one that recruiters and retention sergeants told you would have when you got out of the service.”

The firm works with veterans to help them turn their oftentimes overlooked skills in leadership, as well as their technical skills, into marketable items on job applications and resumes. There is no fee until the veteran finds a job and has received a first paycheck. For details or inquiries on the service, Brewster can be contacted at
