    Veterans Appreciation Breakfast

    This breakfast will begin with the playing of the National Anthem and heartfelt appreciation to our local Veterans and agencies.  You'll hear from our special guests about their success stories and how we as human resource professionals can support our veterans through mentoring, coaching and sponsorship.  

    Network with current active duty service members working in recruiting and retention to share best practices and to learn how we can support our Veterans and Reserve / National Guard service members in finding meaningful employment as well as retaining the ones you have.

    Our presenters will discuss:
    - how their time in the service prepared them in their current civilian role
    - ways that employers can leverage the skill-sets of Veteran candidates
    - how to read military resumes
    - best practices to source veterans and military candidates
    - insight into the changes that come with leaving the service and entering civilian life
    - supporting our Veterans through mentoring, coaching and sponsorship
