We host a monthly networking luncheon called Warrior For Life at Masraff’s, located in Uptown. This event gives you the opportunity to meet veterans who are looking for new careers and a chance to connect with them one on one.

Posting jobs on VetsList is also another way to connect to veterans. We are a local resource that can connect you to veterans in a virtual world that also has a physical presence. We encourage small businesses to use our free service as a way for them to expand their workforce with professional military veterans.
