Join us for a free hiring fair and transition summit for service members, veterans, and military spouses. This summit features key federal and state agencies, influential military leaders, innovators in the business and employer communities, and local community leaders.

This two-day transition summit will feature interactive and informative panel discussions, recruiter training, and facilitated discussions focused on improving competitive employment for service members, veterans, and military spouses. The summit will also include a networking reception for employers, military leaders, and job seekers, and will culminate in a hiring fair on the second day.

► October 10  |  Afterburner Military Transition Seminar | 8:00am to 4:00pm

Each Military Transition Seminar is a strategic career planning experience designed specifically for exiting veterans and based on the nationally acclaimed veteran transition guide Down Range. Seminars are created and delivered by veterans who made the successful transition to civilian careers, and they include tactical job search skills that focus on the pathway to a civilian career as opposed to just a job.

Special registration is required for this event. Click here to register for the Afterburner Seminar.
