The Skills-Based Journey of America’s Veterans


The President’s Management Agenda notes: “As our government faces complex challenges, the need for federal leaders, managers, and frontline staff with the right skills in the right jobs has never been greater.” Fortunately, our veterans possess a wealth of skills – from leadership and collaborative teamwork to the ability to solve tough problems and act with grace under pressure – all of which can help advance the government mission. In this session, we’ll cover the challenges veterans face in transitioning from military to civilian careers and how federal agencies can leverage a skills-based approach to hiring and cultivating talent among the veteran community.
