Though experience in the military positions veterans as strong candidates sought after by many companies, meaningful experiences (internships) in the field provide post-military responsibilities and significant focus to elevate your candidacy over the standard applicant field. To your candidacy, keep you current, and separate you from an otherwise crowded applicant field. Mr. Perry will introduce the methods for attaining internships and discuss how the Career Center can provide individual help with the search and with developing materials for applying.
