Abstract:

During this interactive session, you will learn about the specifics of career and educational advising that veterans need, at various points in their transitions, in order to make informed decisions about what career to pursue and where to study. You will also hear about existing programs, as well as the significant gaps in providing these services and what some possible models for change could look like. You will leave equipped with innovative practices to help veterans succeed as they return to civilian life.
