Phoenix College Veteran Services is collaborating with Support Education and Employment for Vets (S.E.E.4VETS) and the Valley's business community to host the First Annual Veteran Summit, November 6.

The summit is designed to give business leaders, veteran students and alumni an opportunity to engage in an open dialogue about ways skilled veterans can help satisfy the needs of local employers.

The Summit is not a job fair. It is a way for veteran students and alumni to network with leaders in the business community and learn how to transition into the business industry.

Phoenix College Career Services staff will be on hand to help veterans with resume preparation. Free business cards, flash drive, and resume printing will be available prior to the event.

Network and meet great people who can help you get to the next stage of your career!
