Event description

Description

Description

The transition from military to civilian life can be difficult. The biggest obstacle to overcome is finding that great career launch pad. As a military veteran, you already stand out in the crowd as a resource that is sought by companies who value excellence in their personnel. At the Warrior For Life Luncheon, you get to meet those employers, one on one.

Designed to create direct contact between veterans and local employers, Warrior For Life provides a forum for veterans to get hired. Hosted once a month at Masraff's in the Galleria, veterans have a chance to market themselves in a professional, yet personal environment.

For veterans:

  • This event is an invite only luncheon.
  • Promptly arrive at 10:45 a.m. This allows time for the staff to prepare you for the event.
  • There is plenty of free parking.
  • It is required to bring a copy of your updated resume to attend.
  • The dress code is business professional. Suit and tie for men, business suit for women. If you need professional attire for the event, see the following links for men and women.
  • This is a professional lunch for you to talk with employers and network. Please do not bring guests or family members.

For employers:

  • Please arrive promptly at 11:15 a.m., so that the staff can brief the employers on what to expect before the event starts.
  • You do not need to bring swag - there is no space, and you'll be busy interacting with veteran candidates. Business cards and small brochures/trifolds work great at this event.
  • Limit three attendees per company.
  • Veteran attendance is subsidized in part by employer tickets. Consider adding a donation to cover the full cost of a veteran so we can continue making this event a success.
  • Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact Mia Garcia at Mia@nextopvets.org to learn more.
