    Warrior For Life Luncheon

    Warrior_for_Life_Social_Media_Flyer.png

    The transition from military to civilian life can be difficult. The biggest obstacle to hurdle is finding that great career launch pad. Being a military veteran, you already stand out in the crowd as a resource that is sought by those companies who value excellence from their personnel. At the Warrior For Life Luncheon, you get to meet those companies, one on one.

    Designed to create direct contact between veterans and local employers, Warrior For Life provides the forum for veterans to get hired. Hosted once a month at Masraff's in the Galleria, veterans have a chance to market themselves in a professional, yet personal environment. The Lone Star Veterans Association has coordinated with local employers to emphasize a veteran hiring initiative and to introduce Warrior For Life as a resource for potential employees.

    For veterans:

    • Promptly arrive at 11:00 a.m.  This is 30 minutes earlier than employers in order to prepare for the event.
    • There is plenty of free parking. 
    • You need to have a proper and up-to-date resume/CV. 
    • You need to dress professionally. Suit and tie for men, business suit for women. If you need professional attire for the event email Connie Gray at connie@lonestarveterans.org
    • This is a professional lunch for you to talk with employers and network. It is not an event that involves family members or guests.
    • If you register for the luncheon you need to attend.  If you cannot make the luncheon, it is important that you email communications@lonestarveterans.org  or call (281)744-7972 by 10:00 AM the day prior to the luncheon.  This allows space for those veterans on the wait list.

    • Please limit yourself to no more than three attendees per company.

    Lone Star Veterans Association's mission is to build the community of post-9/11 veterans through fun, positive, and inclusive events. Due to responses from member surveys over the past two years and the lack of current events targeting the LGBT community we are re-launching our LGBT Veterans social in 2017. This will be a monthly event for our veterans that have proudly served. 

     

    We have also created a closed Facebook group in order to allow this Affinity Group to effectively communicate between events.
