The day starts with a complimentary childcare drop-off (up to 60 pre-registered children at Clover CDC, Regatta CDC, and Boys & Girls Club of Oak Harbor). Together we will enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast and lunch buffet catered by a military spouse business.
Throughout the day, we will learn from leaders who have been in our shoes as military spouses and veterans to inspire us with tools, resources, and strong connections. Our program includes:
- professional headshots
- breakout sessions
- panel discussions
- keynote speakers
- expo-style networking
- giveaways and complimentary raffles
These questions keep coming up: Where and how do I start? How can I build a strong personal brand? What are the 21st-century tools and resources to get back on my feet and transition to a successful career? What about virtual jobs? How do I build strong connections? How can I make my idea a reality and start a new business? Presenters will address these and more in the course of the day.
We thought of all these questions and brainstormed to come up with a journey built on relationship building and empowering results. A variety of sessions will cover: entrepreneurship, personal branding, headshots, LinkedIn, informational interviews, resume-writing tips, mock interviews, negotiating an offer, working remotely, launching a new brand, transition tools, inspirational stories, expo-style networking, and dressing for success.
Looking for tips on taking a great head shot and nailing your networking? Military spouse and digital marketing professional Nicole Hempeck has you covered in her new blog post on the subject.
