Military Employment Summit

Did you know that 27,000 service members will transition out through North Carolina bases in 2015, already equipped with the high-demand skills that your business needs?

Join us for this complimentary event and learn how to make military hiring a part of your business strategy



When: Tuesday, August 18, 2015 | 10:00 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.

Where: Metlife Global Technology Campus | 9000 Weston Parkway, Cary, NC 27513

What: Senior industry, government, and military leaders will come together to learn — and share success stories — about how hiring service members and veterans drives bottom-line business results. Held in partnership with the NC Chamber of Commerce, these events are designed to help NC companies integrate military employment into their human resource strategy and to make annual military hiring commitments.

Who Should Attend?
Senior-level leaders (Presidents, Vice Presidents, Directors, and other business leaders) who set their company’s strategic vision will walk away with a new understanding of how military hires drive business results, and how to integrate military employment into their business strategy. All attendees should come ready to hear and discuss what some of NC’s leading companies are doing to grow and support a strong military workforce.

Cost: Free to all attendees
