Veteran Employment Strategy Summit 2013

Aug 27, 2013 9:00 am
Downtown San Francisco

Hiring and Supporting Veterans in the Workplace:

Veterans bring a wealth of skills, leadership ability and loyalty to the workplace. Many companies have expressed the desire to hire veterans but don’t know where to start, and many have implemented hiring programs but need guidance on how to support veterans in the workplace.

The event will provide opportunities for San Francisco Bay Area employers (with or without veteran hiring programs) to learn practical ways to recruit, hire and support their veteran employees.

Keynote Speaker: Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist and Craigconnects
This is taking place in downtown San Francisco on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 from 9am to 3pm. Please use the form below to contact us to attend and get more information.

  • Learn how to access Swords to Plowshares’ and other federally funded veteran employment and training services.
