NASWA Veterans Conference: Discovering Your Purpose After Transitioning: Tools for Finding the Right Career Match Post-Discharge

September 30, 2020

Veterans want to ensure that their career after military life is a good fit that provides them with a sense of purpose. This interactive session by LEAD Center staff, on August 13 at the virtual 2020 National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) Veterans Conference, provided participants with: (1) tools specifically developed to assist in the “discovery” process, which is especially useful for war-wounded Veterans seeking employment or apprenticeships, and (2) tools to assist Veterans in envisioning how their military training, discipline, and mission-focus can benefit an employer and how to make that connection. The session was presented by Rebecca Salon, Co-Project Director, LEAD/WIOA Policy Development Center; Nancy Boutot, Financial Empowerment Manager, National Disability Institute; and Rose Warner, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of Disability Employment Policy, U.S. Department of Labor.
