Join us on November 4 for this great workshop focused on hiring  veteran and military spouses.

More than a third of veterans are underemployed—and 65% leave their first post-military job within 6 months, creating challenges for job seekers and hiring companies alike. But employers can help fix this—if they understand what’s at stake and how their own organizations can benefit from hiring from the post-military community.

In this virtual session, you’ll hear from one of the top minds on this topic, Rob Arndt, who will break down the challenges, the benefits, the myths and the truths of veteran hiring.

This satellite session is part of the larger VET Summit, held virtually November 3 and 4 and produced by The RECON Network.

A 14-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Rob has spent the past decade working as a consultant with Fortune 500 companies, small & mid-sized organizations, federal agencies, government contractors, and educators to build effective military veteran and diversity recruitment and compliance systems.
