Veterans and Small Business Challenge
Are you a Veteran looking for a free, practical career training program on civilian workplaces and today’s job markets?
Are you, or a Veteran you know, interested in connecting with not only other Veterans who are transitioning into civilian work but also small business owners who are looking for great employees?
This fall, Challenge Factory is holding free sessions for Veterans who are making the transition to civilian workplaces. Through a series of three sessions Veterans will engage with a research-backed psychometric assessment that supports the identity shift that Veterans and transitioning members often face. They will also get real-life experience and first-hand stories about civilian job settings and small- to medium-sized business (SMEs).
