VETs Initiative: Mentor-A-Veteran
Share |

Our marquee program matches a SHRM-Atlanta HR professional with a career-seeking veteran protégé. Mentors provide the assistance, coaching and support that Veterans need during transition.  Our desire is that mentors and protégés establish a long-term professional and personal relationship that is mutually beneficial and rewarding. Mentors are trained and supported by SHRM-Atlanta volunteers using SHRM-Atlanta and SHRM National resources. This mentor training and the veterans reemployment resources will help SHRM-Atlanta members become an even more valuable resource in their organization.

Please check this page for updated regarding volunteer opportunities.  If you have previously volunteered to be a mentor, you will be contacted via e-mail as soon as we can partner you with a veteran.  If you want to volunteer, please contact Derrick Hall (678.521.3575).

JobThoughts®

JobThoughts® has agreed to give 1,000,000 JobThoughts® Career Assessments & Employment Planning Packs to U.S. veterans in appreciation of their service. These Career Packs are currently sold through career counselors for $100 or more, which means that this extraordinary donation has a value of $100 million. Dr. Robert White, chief operating officer of BestWork DATA said, "This is what we should be doing for our veterans. This act is more than showing our gratitude for the service our men and women have given to our country. This act is an opportunity to assist our veterans to successfully return to the peace of home, family and competitive employment."  JobThoughts® is partnering with SHRM-Atlanta VETs Mentor-A-Veteran program and will provide free JobThoughts® Career Assessments & Employment Planning Packs to SHRM-Atlanta mentors and Veteran protégées to support this program.
