Career Summits Are For the Entire Military Family

Transition Summits have been rebranded to be more inclusive of the entire military community, which includes service members wherever they are in their career, military spouses, and veterans.  Listen in as Marnie Holder, Director of Career Summits & Virtual Events at Hiring Our Heroes, discusses the importance of attending career events no matter where you are in your career journey and how Career Summits are beneficial for the entire military family.

 

Top Takeaways from Career Summits Are for the Entire Military Family: 

1. The name change to Career Summits originated from the desire to make these events inclusive of the entire military community.

“We’re really making it a community event. We want anyone regardless of where they’re at in their military career or military spouses wherever they are at in their career progression to be a part of these events.” –Marnie Holder, Director of Career Summits & Virtual Events, Hiring Our Heroes

 

2. Networking is a key component to being successful in the civilian sector, which is why it’s important to start building those connections early.

“Your network should be something you’re always investing in no matter where you are or what you’re doing.” –Marnie Holder, Director of Career Summits & Virtual Events, Hiring Our Heroes

 

3. Career Summits are designed to impart knowledge of the civilian workforce to attendees through different career skills workshops.

“We want to provide more meaningful conversations: how do you really package yourself, how do you get that elevator pitch locked in, how do craft your personal brand, what it is that you’re trying to convey to employers?”–Marnie Holder, Director of Career Summits & Virtual Events, Hiring Our Heroes
