Transitioning military veterans enter the workforce with diverse experiences and tremendous leadership capacity. The November 2nd event explores how veterans focused on financial fields can better take inventory of their strengths, preferences, and tolerances to make fulfilling choices that give them greater staying power in their Wall Street roles. Concurrently, explore the benefits of hiring military veterans and military spouses. When veterans feel they are making meaningful contributions, employers are much more likely to see the lasting benefits of veteran hiring. Following opening remarks and a keynote, a panel will share examples of how they leveraged the skills learned while in military service to transition to lasting successful careers in finance.
