In these especially challenging economic times, there have been hundreds of thousands of transitioning veterans and military spouses looking for meaningful employment in spite of limited professional networks and strong cultural differences. In partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring our Heroes initiative, AcademyWomen is bridging the gap between job seeking veterans, military spouses and corporations searching for skilled talent.
The President of AcademyWomen, Susan Feland, said "Mentoring unites corporate, nonprofit and the veteran communities to strengthen our nation with a diverse workforce of talent." The eMentor Programs help veterans and spouses navigate new challenges. Derek Nail, a retired Army Officer said, "I love the Veteran eMentor Program … I can't tell you how important the program has been to me and my job search. If I didn't have this program I don't know where my job search process would be right now."
