This is achieved by automatically connecting you with business professionals in various industries, companies, and others with expertise in many areas. It all happens through personal conversations using your mobile phones. In other words, Veterati helps you prepare and network at the same time. Keep that in mind.

How will Veterati help me with my transition and job search?
Veterati empowers you to take charge of your transition by offering you a way to connect with people who volunteer their time to be your mentor. Mentors help you figure things out to make informed decisions. Mentors prepare you for hiring events, interviews, resumes, and so much more. Here is the best part… Mentors are people who can help you tap into the hidden jobs market and expand your social network by referring you to others they know. Boom! This is part of how you network-to-get-work.
One last thing, Veterati mentors are also grateful Americans who are committed to your success and who want to say more than “Thank you for your service”. Some will even do the mentor-dance if they help you land a job.
