ACP’s Industry Exploration Webcast Series
Seventy percent of ACP's veteran applicants are unsure of what industries they plan to enter after the military. In response, ACP is working with its Partner Companies to provide exposure to different industries and insight into diverse career opportunities.
ACP's Industry Exploration Webcast Series will consist of hourlong sessions featuring a panel of employees across different divisions within the company. Company employees will provide an overview of career paths and the hiring process, and will answer questions from veterans across the country. After the event, veterans are invited to apply to open positions.
