Event Details

Setting Up Strategic Assets: Bridges to Employment events assemble executives and senior managers from the public and private sectors to engage in a panel discussion to educate veterans on the strengths they bring to their future careers. Following the panel, veterans in attendance will be immersed in a networking forum, providing an opportunity for veterans to engage with professional partners from numerous corporations to empower veterans with networking skills and relationships necessary to succeed in the civilian sector.

The Setting Up Strategic Assets: Bridges to Employment seminars are designed to arm veterans with pertinent networking skills and provide the opportunity to effectively market themselves with many leading corporations in the civilian sector through open forum. 

Student Veterans,

The Setting Up Strategic Assets are progressing nicely and many high level corporations are signing up.   These events are not hiring events, but rather in-depth networking sessions with HR reps from local companies who have signed up to mentor and coach student veterans.  You should dress to impress, good options are business casual ,ie nice slacks (not jeans) and shirt, sweater, casual or sport jacket.
