Navigating civilian employment can be complicated for those accustomed to military norms.

 

A warm intro, a friendly space, + repetitive exposure to a "new language and culture" can make all the difference, especially when it's provided directly by veterans already working in civilian roles.

all sessions are Thursdays at 3EST/12PST via Zoom
