///// WE’VE GOT ANSWERS
Below are a few of the questions we regularly get when we talk to people about RECON. If you have a question we don’t answer below, feel free to contact us and we’ll get you some more info.
Because RECON is a veteran-focused event by design, we try to make sure we are actually working with our veterans who need this the most. For that reason, we make sure that the people filling up those seats are exclusively veterans or military spouses.
Actually, no. RECON takes a different approach to determining a veteran’s next career path—and it’s primarily focused on defining purpose and translating current skills and experience. Our hope is that however our RECON vets go about finding their next job, that they are doing it with self-awareness and purpose, to create a fulfilling and meaningful life for themselves.
We believe that each person on this planet has a purpose, and are most happy and fulfilled when they are in environments that support that purpose. So for us, it’s not about filling “a job.” It’s about determining what makes someone happy and fulfilled at the most basic level, and then building a career and a lifestyle off of that. For more on why purpose is important, check out our page on purpose-based training.
To begin with, we incorporate an intensive workshop that breaks down identity, roles, and utilizes a highly-predictive career assessment that helps translate what someone is already built for, and helps us start the “translation” process from a military language into a civilian one. Then, we work on defining individual purpose and individual goal-setting. All these things, when done in collusion with local speakers on career placement, entrepreneurship and education, make up a RECON event.
We try to cover a wide group of topics, and especially topics in career development, workforce, education and entrepreneurship.
There are many ways to getting involved with the RECON Network, from being a sponsor to a partner provider or even an attendee or speaker. If any of these interest you, let us know and we’ll start a conversation.
We are constantly adding new cities to our lineup to bring RECON events to, so let us know where you are and why you think we’d be a good fit there, and we’ll take a look.
