Members of the Warrior Gateway team will be attending “The 4th Annual National Conference presented by Student Veterans of America,” December 8-10, 2011 in Las Vegas, NV. This will be a great opportunity to connect with student veterans, their families, and the organizations and institutions assisting them. To see the event schedule, register, and learn more information, click here.
Opening remarks and guest speakers include: Eric Shinseki, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs; Col. David Sutherland, Special Assistant to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and Kevin Schmiegel, Vice President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The conference theme is “Combating Veteran Unemployment,” which is a predominant issue right now for veterans nationwide. One of the conference highlights will be the career fair on Friday, which will involve Student Veterans of America partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and RecruitMilitary to bring employers from across many different sectors together that want to hire veterans. Top tier employers will be in attendance, such as veteran friendly employers Booz Allen Hamilton and General Electric. Attendees are encouraged to bring multiple copies of their resume and employers are asked to bring national and local job opportunities.
We will provide a live feed from the event through social media, so stay in touch! If you are attending, or know someone who is, please connect with us. We are excited to network with as many student veterans, military families, and other organizations as we can.
