THE VALUE OF HIRING MILITARY TALENT ==========================================================================

One thing that separates a good company from a great company is the talent of their workforce, yet most businesses struggle to capitalize on what is decidedly their most valuable asset.

In a study of over 2,500 hiring managers, results indicated that 1 in 5 new hires were considered to be unsuitable for their company. Former service members are consistently more productive, more safety conscious, and more likely to stay with a company long term. Companies can experience an immediate bottom-line benefit by employing these high-performing, technically capable, and reliable team players.

Mia Garcia will offer solutions to strengthen the workforce and encourage industry growth via military veteran employment.

Participant Learning Objectives:

- Ascertain best practices for military recruiting
- Identify how to locate military talent
- Discern how to retain your veterans
- Discover work opportunity tax credit

Mia Garcia is Program Director for NextOp. Michelle A. Garcia (Mia) is a native Houstonian and proud Texan with a strong military record. She enlisted in the United State Marine Corps shortly after 9/11; served multiple enlistments with both active and reserve components including a yearlong deployment to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring & Iraqi Freedom. After serving over eight years and earning the rank of Sergeant, she received an honorable discharge in 2011.

Attending college throughout the latter part of her military service Mia graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Houston with a Bachelors of Science in 2012. After graduating she served as a volunteer for Lone Star Veterans Association (LSVA) where she found her
passion to encourage and assist fellow veterans, specifically by helping them find meaningful careers. She soon became the Veteran Career Transition Manager, taking on a direct role in assisting recently separated service members transitioning through mentorship, resume building, interview practice, and ultimately career placement.

Prior to joining NextOp, Mia was a Staffing Specialist for Baker Hughes and part of a small Military Recruiting Team that earned a national ranking from GI Jobs magazine for the third friendliest military employer. In addition she also became the Chapter Chairman of her local Veterans Resource Group, which encouraged mentorship, outreach, and engagement of local chapter veterans.

TRANSLATING MILITARY EXPERIENCE ==========================================================================
After years of being surrounded by other service members that speak in acronyms and military jargon, upon separation, veterans often struggle to effectively communicate their qualifications with HR personnel in the civilian sector. While they are often highly qualified for a position, their military skills, experiences, and accomplishments can get lost in translation due to military jargon.

NextOp's Dina Anderson will engage the audience, provide practical tips to bridge this gap and help you develop a high caliber workforce with more military talent.

Participant Learning Objectives:

- Attain resources to help translate military experience
- Clarify basic understanding of military experience
- Takeaway ideas to leverage your internal military network
