54% of enlisted say their mil service was very/fairly useful in getting civilian employment vs 78% of officers. (https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2019/09/09/the-transition-to-post-military-employment/)
We know it's tough to navigate. Our co-founder separated as an E4. We also just wrapped up our 50strong EmployerConnect series -
And thanks to our military-ready sponsors & partners, there's now 22+ hrs of industry-driven career readiness & employment opps available on our website for anytime replay.
But here's the thing:
We do these as webcasts and I missed looking in the eyes of folks that were joining in.
Also, I suspect we were light on junior enlisted (we don't ask for rank at registration) -
and I know our live attendance was way too light on women veterans.
So, to enlisted service members & veterans (esp women, students & Jr Enlisted!): please consider joining 50strong for a virtual coffee in January.
We will keep it small, casual & short.
But we do want say hi & hear your story.
Please also know: our employer partners value you & our workforce needs you.
