The best time to build relationships & grow your exposure to civilian industry? NOW!! 

We want to help you build relationships today with those in industry that can help you understand various types of jobs, find your best-fit career, share advice from personal experience of military-to-civilian transition, help you become a stronger applicant - and introduce you directly to job opportunities.

In addition to our at-scale events in collaboration with many employer & education partners, we think that there is tremendous opportunity for on-demand 1:1 conversation & mentoring that is unique to each individual's location, functional area, etc.

We've partnered with Veterati.  You can leverage any of Veterati's existing mentors *OR* connect with one of our 50strong Mentors!  


We encourage you to "date around" and have as many conversations as possible with as many different individuals as possible!

Are you:

  • A transitioning service member looking for or currently participating in DoD SkillBridge?

  • A transitioning service member seeking Full-Time opportunities?

  • A student veteran in "extended transition" getting your education to support a strong career?

  • A community veteran that may already be in civilian industry but looking for a change?

  • A Military Spouse wanting to build your networks to find that strong fit?

If so, this is for you!

50strong Employer Partner ERG Mentors

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are employee-led groups that work to foster diversty & inclusion within their organization.  ICYDK:  Military-ready employers often have Veteran ERGs, both veterans and civilians, that work together in support of military inclusion and community engagement. 

We believe the members of Veteran ERGs can be amazing sources of information for those in transition.  


In collaboration with these leading military-ready employers, this team of mentors has been nominated by their employers. Most are veterans and all are part of their employer's Veterans ERG.  They can give you guidance and thoughts overall but importantly, they are working closely with their Military/Veteran Hiring team - so they can connect you directly with potential opportunities at military-ready employers that we partner with closely with everyday.

We're now working with Veteran ERGs at these leading military-ready employers to support 1:1 conversations for OVERALL INDUSTRY EXPOSURE + EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES within their organizations via Veterati!

50strong Community Mentors

In addition to our employer partners, we've asked some of our trusted friends & colleagues to join us as mentors.  These are veterans and civilians that want to support your career journey - we know them all personally and have asked them to join in to offer exposure to what they do on a daily basis to help you get lots of cross-industry insight.  Why?  Because we think exposure is key to navigating the many options within civilian employment.
