Event 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.

Hear from LSVA member Natasha, who landed a job with an employer she met at Warrior for Life:

For veterans:

  • Promptly arrive at 11:00 a.m. This is 30 minutes earlier than employers in order to prepare for the event.
  • There is plenty of free parking.
  • Though not required, it's a great idea to bring an up-to-date resume/CV.
  • 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. Spouses of veterans are welcome! And no, your veteran spouse does not need to attend with you.
  • If you RSVP, you need to attend. If you cannot make the luncheon, it is important that you email communications@lonestarveterans.org or call (281)744-7972 by 10:00 AM the day prior to the luncheon. This allows space for those veterans on the wait list.


For employers:

  • Please arrive promptly at 11:30 a.m.
  • You do not need to bring swag - there's not enough 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 communications@lonestarveterans.org to learn more.
