Warrior For Life Luncheon - Careers in IT

W4L_-_IT_Careers.png

This month's event will be targeting careers in Information Technology (IT). We will bring together our veterans experienced and interested in this career field along with employers hiring these positions and those passionate about sharing their story of transition from the military to a career in IT.

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.
