Help a veteran or military spouse address specific needs or interests related to their job search. Mentoring topics are based on your professional experience such as networking, interviewing, general career planning or sharing knowledge specific to an industry or position. Please note these are one-time conversations and do not require a long-term commitment. Be sure to indicate which mentoring topics you are comfortable discussing in the application below.
We welcome volunteers who wish to plan and conduct an independent event with proceeds benefiting Hire Heroes USA. A special event can be as small as asking for donations in lieu of gifts at a party or wedding; or a larger community event like a 5K, bike ride or sports tournament.
Mentoring in the Federal Sector
Speak with veterans and military spouses interested in working for the federal government. You could provide advice on the USA Jobs portal, what a federal resume should look like, interviewing for a federal position and general tips. If you are interested in this opportunity, select “Federal Sector Employment” as one of your mentoring topics in the application below.
Share your industry knowledge with an audience of job seekers across the country through our webinar events. You may be the main speaker or part of a career panel. Hire Heroes staff will support event administration and execution. Event topics vary, so this is an opportunity available on occasion.
