Excel with a Mentor Program
The Excel with a Mentor Program gives veterans a preview of civilian work-life by connecting vets with HR professionals. The HR professionals act as mentors for six months and give networking and job-search advice. The program was developed in conjunction with the local military base, Mutual of Omaha and HR professionals from companies such as Nebraska Furniture Mart, C&A Industries and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska.
