Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I am very interested in mentoring prior US military servicemembers and those looking to work in the logistics and supply chain fields. US service members have SO much to offer businesses in terms of leadership, grit, and specialized skills. What I often see is that servicemembers fail to communicate their positions, experience, and accomplishments in a language and narrative that civilians will relate. I believe I have had a successful transition from the US military into the civilian business world and can help others navigate that effectively. Also, as a director and hiring manager, I have current insights into what businesses are looking for from prospective employees.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

I will work to find times that work for myself and the mentees.
