Veteran Transition Conference

Our Veteran Transition Conference events have dynamic entrepreneurs, business leaders and trailblazers that volunteer their time to help you thrive in your transition from the military, showing you step by step how to start your own successful business or find your dream job


  • Decision making criteria to formulate a second career or life after the military
  • Networking strategy centered about industries of choice
  • Develop individual value propositions that drive success in transition
  • Develop and execute a career transition plan
  • Identify your personality and what career fields fit best
  • Understanding Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)
  • Identifying and understanding the world of recruiting
  • Resumes, interviewing, and salary negotiations


Service members and spouses will leave the day with a written strategic plan that will help them answer the following questions:

  • What is my dream career?
  • How does that relate to my passion?
  • Where are the broken links in my career search chain?
  • What are the things I do NOT need to do?
  • How does a specific calendar with date of separation as end goal help me stay on track?

Once you register please take this 20 second survey, as it will determine which hiring managers will come

FIND YOUR PURPOSE and learn how to tell your story through tools taught by world-renowned crowd funding expert Clay Hebert.

After this TWO-DAY event (you need to commit to both days, as seats are limited), you will:

Walk away knowing your “why”

Be given a flash drive with a professional headshot and “intro video” that will be used when contacting potential employers

Have built a functional personal website/online resume

Have learned interview techniques taught by hiring managers

Possibly just walk away with a job, since we are bringing real hiring managers to do mock (and real) interviews.
