Concurrent Breakout Session: Connecting Military Talent to High-Demand Careers through Tech and Industry Focused Internships

Franklin Square

Description

Connecting Military Talent to High-Demand Careers through Tech and Industry Focused Internships

Traditional workforce models are not meeting the talent needs of employers and are ineffective at connecting veterans and military spouses to in-demand careers. Hiring Our Heroes and industry partners will discuss how they are combining upskilling/reskilling with a direct connection to employers through remote internships. This highly successful model is moving workforce development into the future and can be replicated across industries, roles, and under-represented talent pools.
