Presented by: Allen Whiteside, Programs Director - Next Op Houston Area
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.
Allen Whiteside 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 to your organization
- Clarify basic understanding of military experience as it relates to other industries
