Alexandria, Va. – Military veterans seeking civilian jobs and HR managers looking to recruit them will gather June 26-27 at the San Diego Convention Center in California to learn how to network with one another, translate the military and corporate lingo that separates them, and adjust to workplace cultural differences.
The military-focused program, “Military Veterans: Transitioning Skills to the New Economy” is a first for the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and will debut during the SHRM 2010 Annual Conference & Exposition to address the recruitment and retention issues for U.S. military veterans.

The event is free for military personnel and veterans (preregistration required).Among HR professionals, registration for the military program is free but open only to those already registered to attend the SHRM conference at large.
The program features two tracks — one for civilian attendees and one for transitioning military attendees — as well as joint sessions of mutual interest, and a networking reception.
