Across the U.S., there are more than 21 million veterans. While veteran unemployment in general is low, it is widely agreed upon that the skills and talents that veterans offer should play a significant part in our economic efforts.
How is RECON Different?
In corporate discussions, we talk often of ensuring that each employee is in the right “fit” for their job—that they are happy and fulfilled in their position, not simply employed. The RECON Network aims to take that same focus to the veteran population, with an intensive conference that focuses on their transition and addresses topics like roles, identity, personal purpose, and future goals, and then plugs these veterans into the local community—not just for a “perfect fit” career, but also for community engagement. We at The RECON Network believe that the entire state can benefit when our veteran population is both purposefully employed and “plugged in” to their own community.
In short, we’ve created The RECON Network to provide purpose-based career planning for veterans and their spouses in career transition, with a focus on both workforce and community involvement.
