& TRANSITION SUMMIT
///// GLOBALLY ACCESSIBLE
Once again this year, the 2021 VET Summit will be ONLINE! This year with an expanded platform, expo hall, day-of networking and more, this event will be one you won’t want to miss!
There are more than 18 million veterans across the United States—and many of those veterans, along with military spouses, are currently unemployed— or, in other cases, underemployed or undereducated.
The transition to civilian or corporate employment has its own challenges, as well—challenges that must be addressed in order to ensure our veteran and military populations can find their fit within our workforce. From identifying potential gaps in the hiring process to translating skills, the Veteran Employment Summit was designed to address these challenges, as well as uncover opportunities for job-seeking veterans and employee-seeking companies.
This two-day conference will focus on both sides of veteran employment—the hiring side (for corporate professionals) and the employment side (for veterans, transitioning military and military spouses).
