The most common challenge for veterans who transition out of the military into civilian life is transition stress, much of it from an inability to find meaningful work that leverages the service members’ time and experience while in service to the country. Conversely, many employers express concern with limited candidate pools, seeking out quality workers with leadership skills. This panel will look at different ways to solve both issues with good training, tech innovation and growing awareness.
