About the Event

Join us in celebrating our veterans, active military, military spouses, and those who care for them at this special session of Colorado Career Connectors.

We are honored to have Tony Gilbert, Program Manager of Military and Veteran Recruitment, Raytheon Missiles and Defense, Theda Johnson, Senior Technical Recruiter and Military Community Advocate at DocuSign, and Jim VanderMeer, the author of Operation Lily Pad and Product Director at Zendesk.

Chelle and our panelists will be discussing job hunting preparation and strategy, networking, and how hiring leaders make decisions on top talent. You will have the chance to hear more about these amazing companies, what they are looking for, how they hire, and what's hot in today's candidate market. Breakout rooms are also being offered so that you may personally meet and speak with our panelists.

Part of the funds earned from this event will go directly back to military transition programs as well.

Learn more about Jim and Operation Lily Pad:

From Jim’s website: "Operation Lily Pad" is more than just a basic job hunting "how-to" guide. Instead, this book is designed to enable veterans to realize there is more to job searching than just crafting a resume and following the cookie-cutter template of preparation! This insightful book dives deeper into many seldom – or lightly discussed factors – impacting job hunting such as hiring biases and stereotypes, job hunting preparation and strategy, where to look (to include the hidden job market), professional branding, networking, negotiating offers, and even how hiring managers evaluate and make hiring decisions. And yes, resume optimization, cover letter customization, LinkedIn profile (i.e., social media) preparation, and interview approaches and techniques are also covered. This is a must-have guide for all veterans who are transitioning into civilian and professional life!

Attendees will be able to purchase the book through BookBaby with a discount code provided. Proceeds from this e-book will be donated to organizations committed to helping transitioning military and veterans.
