Date: Thursday, November 6th

Time and location: 3:00-5:00pm, HUB 337

This moderated panel and post-panel informal networking opportunity will give veteran students and alumni the opportunity to hear first-hand from employer representatives and veterans employed at local companies including Starbucks, Microsoft, Amazon and Google about succeeding in today's job market, what networking is all about, and how to best translate military experience into the civilian workplace.
