Join CIR on Thursday, September 27, for a Brown Bag session: “Veteran Employment and Work Transitions” with Ms. Susan Fallon. Ms. Fallon will discuss the Veteran Talent Index: Insights and Analysis from Veteran Professionals, Recruiters, and Hiring Managers, published by Monster Insights in May 2012, as well as the challenges that veterans face when transitioning to the civilian workforce. This report is the second of an ongoing series that highlights both the requirements of today’s employers and the needs of transitioning servicemembers, as well as illuminates the gap that is responsible for the high unemployment rate rampant in the veteran population. Monster will track and analyze this gap in a bi-annual Veterans Talent Indices report, to be released around Memorial Day and Veterans Day. These reports will provide insight and recommendations to help both transitioning servicemembers and their employers.
This Brown Bag session will be live-streamed at http://ondemand.usc.edu/SSW/Viewer/?peid=1ca8640421674c63a8c8af7664d20121. Online attendees may participate in the Q&A session by posting their questions to the Facebook event page on the day of the session.
