50strong EmployerConnect: Fall 2020
8.27.20 Employer Connect Kickoff
Tune in to hear how & why we're working together with our university & employer partners to support your career journey. This series is all about providing easy, direct exposure across a variety of employers that specifically seek military talent. And most of our guests are veterans and/or military spouses themselves. The language and knowledge that they will offer can help you navigate your own career journey. To start off the series, our first session will focus on LinkedIn. ICYMI: 95% of recruiters use LinkedIn to find candidates and that REFERRAL is the #1 way to discover new opportunity! Yes, LinkedIn is a powerful tool – but it can also be daunting. We’ll help you get started in a way that makes sense for you! We’ll also have Daniel Rau, CEO of Veterati, and Steve Weintraub, CSO of VetTix, join us to share how you can find your own tribe of mentors and engage with your community.
