PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

 

Many graduates have difficulty finding employment after graduation simply because they did not network and build relationships within their communities.

 

Career development is important for student veterans because many student veterans are pursuing a degree in a field different from their military service background. Because of this, veterans may feel they are starting a new career from the very beginning and may feel they have no competitive edge over younger graduates.

 

Student Veterans Association at ASU Downtown helps student veterans understand and translate their military experience into skills that apply to the civilian workforce and their respective fields of study.

 

We are teaming up with sponsors and partners to develop engaging seminars, workshops and events that will give our student veterans the opportunity to apply their individual skill sets to their fields of study and build relations with possible employers.
