AMPLIFY: What It Is and Why You Should Attend

Navigating the hiring process or re-entering the workforce can be complicated and confusing. Our AMPLIFY events are not only uniquely crafted to reduce these challenges, but they are also proven to equip attendees with more confidence in their interview skills, LinkedIn profile, and overall preparedness in their career journey.

AMPLIFY is an exclusive two-day event that leads a cadre of 45 military spouses through intensive career preparation, professional development, and networking. AMPLIFY attendees will leave with an improved resume, professional photos, a polished LinkedIn profile, and a professional network of fellow military spouses and employers. In 2019, we are proud to have doubled our AMPLIFY offerings to better serve the military spouse community.

Here are 10 more reasons AMPLIFY is for you!

  1. Individualized content—we keep each cohort at 45 or less so we can spend time getting to know YOUR individual journey!
  2. Built-in work time—we’ve built time in to actually work on your resume and LinkedIn Profile so you don’t go home with a list of to-dos that never get to-done.
  3. Meet other career-minded military spouses in your area! The other attendees are just like you and looking to improve! Many of our most powerful connections at AMPLIFY come through the other spouses you meet!
  4. Meet subject matter experts who will give you real answers about how to approach those questions in an interview that no one should be asking!
  5. Mastermind Matches—we match each attendee with a mastermind from the industry of your choice! You get a mini-mentoring session with them either in person or digitally! Many of these connections have had a lasting impact –including hires!
  6. Hone your story! A big focus is on how to market yourself and your SKILLS, not just your previous job titles.
  7. Talk through how to negotiate salary when you’ve lived in a million different economic markets and have been underemployed for what seems like forever…
  8. Figure out how to address the gaps in your resume!
  9. Meet company representatives who truly KNOW the value of hiring military spouses and who can make introductions for you!
  10. We have snacks.
