When you leave the military, the biggest question is "what's next?" It's a scary job market right now, but the skills you've received in the military make you highly marketable. The Legion sponsors dozens of veterans hiring fairs each year, and our employment experts also provide tips to writing resumes, networking and making a strong impression in the interview process.
The American Legion and other organizations are teaming up with Inc. magazine and Joining Forces to conduct an entrepreneur mentoring fair for veterans, servicemembers and their families. The Inc./Joining Forces Military Entrepreneurs Program will take place Sept. 22 in Washington, D.C.
Joining Forces is a national initiative led by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to support the military community. The Inc./Joining Forces Military Entrepreneurs Program will help veterans, service members and their families start, run and grow their own business.
More than 50 prominent CEOs will participate as mentors for the day, providing insights and experience to participants about creating and running a successful business. In a speed-mentoring program, participants will meet one-on-one with two different CEOS to get their questions answered about growing their existing business or just getting started.
