What do transitioning service members and military spouses seeking employment or advancement both need?
Never underestimate the power of a phone call with someone who has been in your shoes and has already walked through that forest of uncertainty. Having a mentor can be one of the biggest game changers in your professional career. They offer valuable insight, encouragement, connections, self-awareness and so much more.
Now, thanks to a partnership between the USO and Veterati, finding a mentor has never been easier. Even better, it's free.
Started by former Marine Daniel Rau and entrepreneur Diana Tsai, Veterati is the only Veteran Mentorship Platform to let you choose your own mentor -- and you can choose as many as you like. Their average member selects four mentors, and some have more than 25 in their corner.
By creating a free profile at Veterati, users get unlimited access to thousands of volunteer mentors: CEOs, recruiters, entrepreneurs, managers, veterans and civilians alike. Mentor sessions are conducted via the phone in one-hour blocks of time.

A mentor can help you bridge the gaps on your resume or talk through a difficult transition. They may offer you tactical guidance or suggest a new perspective that you hadn't previously seen. A mentor's value is exponential.
With this incredible opportunity provided at no cost, the question shouldn't be, "Do you want a mentor?" Instead, it should be, "What are you waiting for?"
