    Masraff's in Houston, TX

    Warrior for Life

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

    Designed to create direct contact between veterans and local employers, Warrior For Life provides a 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.

    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. 
    • Though not required, it's a great idea to bring an up-to-date resume/CV. 
    • The dress code is business professional. Suit and tie for men, business suit for women. If you need professional attire for the event, see the following links for men and women.
    • This is a professional lunch for you to talk with employers and network. Please do not bring guests or family members. Spouses are welcome (please RSVP).
    • If you RSVP, 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. 

     

    For employers:

    • Please arrive promptly at 11:30 a.m.
    • You do not need to bring swag - there is no space, and you'll be busy interacting with veteran candidates. Business cards and small brochures/trifolds work great at this event.
    • Limit three attendees per company.
    • Veteran attendance is subsidized in part by employer tickets. Consider adding a donation to cover the full cost of a veteran so we can continue making this event a success.
    • Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact communications@lonestarveterans.org to learn more.

     

     

    FAQs

    What is the cost of the luncheon?

     $5 for veterans; $35 for employers. If you are an employer who is also a veteran, the cost is still $35 (sorry!).   

    What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

         Valet parking is available, but self-parking is free, close, and plentiful.

    What kind of food will be served?

         Typically, one of the entree items found here. Please let us know if you have any diet/allergy restrictions.

    Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

         communications@lonestarveterans.org or call 281-744-7972

    Can I update my registration information?

         You can change your information at anytime.

    Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

         No, a printed ticket is not necessary to bring with you.

    What's next? 

    Join the conversation in our private LinkedIn group. We invite employers to post their current openings in this group. These are current and past attendees of our Warrior for Life program and a great pool of talent to share your openings and questions for our veterans. You'll be accepted to the group once your RSVP and payment for the event is confirmed.

    Masraff's

    Lone Star Veterans November Christian Lunch

    Join us for a discussion of faith and service with other veterans. Excellent food and fellowship at Masraff's in the Galleria.

    Christian_Graphic_-_November.png

    We have focused our discussions on stories of faith and service. These are meant to inspire, inform, and renew our collective faith as we hear from veterans how their faith has influenced their military service, and vice versa. This is also a great way for civilians who might not know many or any veterans to hear a message of Christian faith that they can relate to and in doing so bridge the gap between civilians and veterans.

    Everyone is welcome to come to this event.  If you would like to attend and cannot pay the lunch fee for any reason, please reach out to connie.gray@lonestarveterans.org and we will take care of it.
