Veterans

Our veterans deserve our thanks and the best our nation has to offer for their service and sacrifice. 

While working as the Director of Business Employer Solutions and Corporate Relations at the Illinois workNet Center in Arlington Heights, I designed and presented a program to connect returning veterans with jobs in manufacturing.

In a short period of 2 weeks, 17 veterans went through an intense training in how to translate their Military Occupational Skills (MOS), to civilian speak while simultaneously I worked with local employers to help them learn how to translate the military speak into civilian speak.

14 out of the 17 veterans found productive employment after the two week bootcamp.

Crains Chicago Business sent a reporter to cover the program. I am featured 3 times in the report. Here is a video. If you have issues with the video loading, please click on this link to open it in YouTube.
