Veteran Hiring – The Value Proposition Luncheon Seminar – Sept 21 Raleigh, Sept 22 Charlotte
You are cordially invited to attend an event featuring the Director of the US Army Soldier for Life Program and hosted by the World’s #1 Resource for Active Duty and Veteran Personnel—Military.com. Military.com focuses on closing the veteran and employer gap, to help streamline the process and work towards decreasing the nation’s veteran unemployment rate. Our featured guest speaker, Colonel Adam Rocke, leads the US Army’s effort to create a network of enablers to connect Soldiers, Veterans, and their Families with employment, education, and healthcare required to successfully reintegrate into civilian society. In this role, Colonel Rocke connects Army, governmental and community efforts to build relationships that support in excess of 100,000 transitioning Soldiers each year. Key to accomplishing this mission is educating employers on the value proposition for hiring Veterans and Military Spouses.
Enjoy a complimentary lunch, while you gain a better understanding of the skills and values Veterans can bring to your organization.
