    Boots to Shoes Foundation met with Olympia SHRM in late 2009 regarding the challenges of 21st century veterans transitioning from the military to the civilian job search.  The discussion provided insight to SHRM members of the challenges facing transitioning 21st century veterans in the civilian work world as well as civilian job search; including job search etiquette and protocols, and how a mentor is an asset for a transitioning veteran.  Over 1 year down the road for this 501c3 organization, what is new in terms of challenges for job seeking veterans and what are the rewards volunteer mentors experience mentoring today’s veterans.  We will bring you up to date on the progress we have made in the last 20 months and we hope to have both one of our mentors and a veteran participate in the Q&A portion of the program.
