Fairfax County Veterans Collaborative

February 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Excited to announce that we will be hosted by the American Legion Dyer-Gunnell Post 180 in Vienna for our next meeting. There is plenty of parking at the upper level (labeled Hall Parking).
HireMilitary.us 

Adam Martinez, with HireMilitary.us, owned by TENOVA LLC, will be hosting us this meeting and will be speaking more about his work in the National Capital Region. HireMilitary.us is more than just a web-based platform that connects employers that want to conduct individual internships under the DoD Skillbridge and Career Skills Programs (CSP) with Service Members that are approved to do so. They are a nation-wide network of passionate veteran and industry leaders with one goal in mind: to decrease both veteran unemployment and veteran underemployment by bringing employers and transitioning service members together.

Adam also serves as the Adjutant for American Legion Dyer-Gunnell Post 180in Vienna, VA and is looking to find more ways to support veterans with employment opportunities in the region. He will also be speaking more to the work they are looking to do this year to help in this effort.
