Veterans Network with Mentors and Company Reps

Mentors, from a variety of companies, provided insight via a panel presentation on the challenges they faced when personally transitioning from the military into the civilian workplace. These same individuals, in addition to other mentors, also made themselves available to those attending by answering questions about job search strategies and career opportunities their own companies offer.
