On May 18, UPS and VETLANTA are hosting a veteran transition symposium at UPS Supply Chain Solutions (55 Glenlake Parkway Atlanta, GA 30328).

A large majority of US military veterans recently surveyed report difficulties in transitioning from military to civilian life. The free conference will focus on translating military experience into skills and knowledge applicable to a wide variety of industries, and will address key questions military personnel have around benefits, job hunting and more answered by senior leaders within organizations and companies in the Metro Atlanta area.

There are going to be 2 tables covering each topic for a total of 10 tables. There will be 2-4 Subject Matter Experts at each table with 12 Veterans per table. The Veterans will have 20 minutes at each table. During the 20 minutes the SMEs will give an overview of their topic then open it up for questions/guided discussion
What we’re going to cover:
