The August schedule gave us a little breathing room leading up to a busy September! We still accomplished a lot over the past month including:
- Hire Heroes USA hosted a one-day employment workshop with 20 veterans, transitioning military, and military spouses at the Deloitte offices in downtown Boise.
- On August 9th, Hire Heroes USA hosted a career day which brought in close to 20 Idaho employers to conduct mock interviews for career-ready candidates. Each participant had the opportunity to do 3 interviews and many have already been confirmed as "hired!"
- Networking and connecting Mission43 members is something we always like to do. Thanks to our friends at Keller Williams Front Porch Boise who sponsored this month's 43INC Happy Hour at the veteran owned Powderhaus Brewing Company. We had over 50 people come out.
- Mission43 launched the Project 43 campaign. You may have caught some of the stories on TV or social media that highlight veterans and military spouses transitioning to their "next." Check out this one featuring an NCO who attended the first Hire Heroes USA workshop as he was preparing to leave the military...pretty inspiring!
Upcoming: One of the things we have been consistently hearing from people is an interest in entrepreneurship. There are a lot of different programs out there, and we wanted to find an affordable, flexible, and very high-level program for our members. As a result, you will see on September 19th that we kick off our Entrepreneurs Sprint with the Boise State University Venture College. This can be a life changing course and we can't wait to take part in this and see what opportunities develop from it. We are also working on finalizing the venue, logistics, and guest for our next Mission43 INC. We will announce that next week! Check out all the other upcoming events!
