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's Washington Office will host a "pitch party" sponsored by the Women Veteran Entrepreneur Corps (WVEC) on March 14 from noon to 2 p.m. The event will invite women veteran business owners and entrepreneurs to the Legion's K Street building for a networking and "pitch" session, where feedback can be given on business and entrepreneurial ideas.
The event is free, and any woman veteran who owns a business or aspires to own a business or become an entrepreneur can attend. Those planning to attend should email an RSVP to Harvetta Spann at firstname.lastname@example.org
WVEC is a new business growth program for women military veterans and spouses with small businesses. Supported by the Legion's Economic Division, the organization aims to teach women veterans how to not only start a small business but sustain growth once the business is started. WVEC's first conference and competition will take place in McLean, Va., on April 29 - 30.
