Hiring Veterans in the Tech and Energy Field Meet Up

Monday, March 14
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Room 210
110 E 2nd St


Texas is known for being home to some of the most successful energy companies in the world. Austin is well-known for attracting top tech companies to set up shop locally and draw on the world-class talent being cultivated in our institutions of higher learning. As one of the largest military populations and most Veteran-friendly states, it makes sense to bring together all 3 in one room. Energy and tech companies are finding that cohorts of recently-hired Veterans are performing at higher rates than their civilian counterparts. Researchers attribute this to the mastery of soft skills that Veterans possess from their military service. Learn why it is important to hire Veterans on your team.
