► October 10  |  Afterburner Military Transition Seminar

Each Military Transition Seminar is a strategic career planning experience designed specifically for exiting veterans and based on the nationally acclaimed veteran transition guide Down Range. Seminars are created and delivered by veterans who made the successful transition to civilian careers, and they include tactical job search skills that focus on the pathway to a civilian career as opposed to just a job.

Special registration is required for this event. Click here to register for the Afterburner Seminar.
