About the Event
- This is CASUAL & EASY. Please come as you are from wherever you are! (Seriously, whatever you're wearing for the day is just fine! Joining on a lunch break from your car is also fine!)
- All cameras will be enabled for max interaction & to help you build direct relationships with these employers. (Don't want yours on? That's ok too.)
- Each employer will host their own breakout rooms. You can enter & leave breakout rooms based on your specific interest areas. Our advice? Keep an open mind and explore many employers!
- Whether you're looking for a job now OR just building relationships for when the time comes, WONDERFUL!!! Maybe one of these employers is a great fit for you, maybe not. Either way, we think the exposure is key as YOU navigate YOUR next steps.
- To help you learn more about each employer, we've pulled together a brief overview of their pathways. You can find it at www.50-strong.us/employmentpathways. (We will be updating through tomorrow so check back for any updates! Please use a desktop & be patient with loading!)
- If you're looking for a job now, we recommend to do some research before the meeting on the career websites and come prepared with a 2-3 specific roles that may fit your skills/education/location & interests!
- If you're active duty and looking for potential SkillBridge opportunities, also check out www.50-strong.us/skillbridgelistings for latest we're tracking at city/state level for many of these employers (plus others!). NOTE: We will be adding info through tomorrow so please check back during the meeting. And we are in the middle of a UI change and not all opportunities have been updated so please leverage this if helpful.
