Hire A Veteran
Florida is currently home to over 100,000 active duty, Reservists and National Guard personnel. Many of these patriots will be exiting active duty service over the next few months and seeking civilian employment. The transition can be a daunting challenge for many. The Military Veterans Transition Seminar has been specifically design for these patriots. Developing an exit strategy, creating a time-line and understanding the transition process are key elements to their success.
Cesar Nader, a former Marine and President/CEO of X Corp Solutions, will share his in-depth knowledge and understanding learned through his own trial and error transition from being a combat-hardened Marine into a successful, not so adrenaline pumping, civilian career. Cesar created the Transition Program he now shares with 1000's of veterans across the country that includes The 6 Phases of the Transition Process.
The day will be broken up into two parts. In the morning, Cesar will talk about “The Transition Timeline,” covering a host of things that should be prepared, completed and considered prior to making the decision of "WHEN" to transition. The afternoon session, “The Transition Process” will walk veterans through all of the elements of a military transition so they can decide "WHAT" they want to do when they separate from the military.
This event is being organized by HirePatriots.com who will provide the materials and a transitioning workbook for each veteran. Provided by HR professionals from around the country, the seminar will include break-out sessions to review and provide feedback and guidance for resumes submitted by veterans. Job interview break-out sessions conducted by actual hiring managers will help veterans learn best practices, how to win the interview, and the Do's and Don’t of the job interview.

The mission of HirePatriots is to create a nationwide employment safety net for US veterans. So wherever a veteran lives in the US, they can find work every day, with either a One Day, Temporary or Full Time job from the HirePatriots website.
HirePatriots is represented by veteran owned and patriotic businesses across America. Each has their own HirePatriots site and job board for their area. But there are many more states and communities that HirePatriots needs to reach in order to achieve their goal of 100% employment for every willing and able US veteran.
HirePatriots has received one of the highest civilian honors a US President can bestow from both President Bush and President Obama: The Congressional Medal of Merit, and the Presidents Volunteer Service Medal.
HirePatriots has helped over 500,000 US veterans find employment to date. But there is a lot more work to do. Nearly 50% of current transitioned veterans are taking more than 3 years before finding sustainable employment. This is devastating to them and their families.
