Veterans and business advisors begin the Heroes Linked military transition assistance program by filling out profiles that identify their expertise, areas of interest, experience, goals, and desired outcomes.
The Heroes Linked web app uses a robust matching algorithm to recommend individuals of interest and initiate effective conversations.
Professional Networking from Any Device
Heroes Linked provides professional development resources for veterans, but isn’t like traditional military job fairs or a brick-and-mortar career advising center. It’s a web app available on all browsers and on all devices that enables veterans getting out of the military to connect and communicate with expert advisors that help them find veteran friendly jobs, offer veteran resume advice, and more… no matter where they are in the country. Heroes Linked uses secure VOIP technology, so from the boardroom to the beach, you will never miss a call.
BUILD A GOOD REPUTATION FOR MILITARY TRANSITION TO CIVILIAN SUCCESS
Every action you make has the potential to help (or hurt) your reputation. Courtesy, Respect, and Follow-through will ensure your success on Heroes Linked, during your transition from a military to civilian career, and in any future networking groups.
Advisors or advisees can initiate a conversation by sending an in-platform message to an individual. Once the message is received and accepted, the advisee can offer various times and dates for a phone call. Advisors approve the call time and the call is scheduled in the Heroes Linked platform. Emails are sent to both parties confirming the appointment and offering to sync to the individual’s personal calendar.
A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM THAT CREATES POSITIVE HABITS
Advisees are given guidance for every single action that they perform on the Heroes Linked platform. From filling out profile information to making initial contact to writing respectful follow ups and thank you messages, the Heroes Linked website prompts Advisees to follow exemplary professional etiquette and gives them guidance on the most effective forms of content. Over time, these actions will become second nature and carry over into the Advisee’s professional life, giving them the communication tools needed to succeed in the civilian job market.
