Presenter(s): 

Dr. Radana Dvorak, Dean, Saint Martin's University; Morgan Zantua, Architect Cyber4Vets, University of Washington

Since 9/11 transitioning our nation's all volunteer military into the civilian workforce is more than our responsibility to ‘thank them for their service.’ This is our opportunity to replace an aging workforce and ensure the investment in our military pays dividends when they identify a civilian career pathway. Many industries cannot find talent and skills. Success depends on a "fit" for the Serviemember and the organization. In this presentation we will talk about the essential aspect of a transitioning program to achieve a win-win for the Servicemember and the hiring organization.
