Greg Cullison, a CORE™ Member of The ASBC and a member of the Princeton Club of
Washington is seeking potential mentors to participate in this activity which supports military veterans.
Princeton Club of Washington is partnering with HireAHero.org to present "Open Doors",
a job search success seminar to be held on 13 and 19 November. The
seminar will include 30 pre-qualified Greater DC-area military veterans with a
demonstrated commitment to taking charge of their careers. After the
seminar we will offer at least 15 candidates the opportunity to have one-on-one
mentorship on a weekly basis to help ensure a successful transition.
Additional updates as well as a set of mentor guidelines will be available closer to the
kick-off date in November.
