Hello Pro Community,
My name is Jennifer and I am part of our employee resource group (ERG) TackVets and I am excited to introduce this group to all of you! I will be posting about events that TackVets is involved in as we work to bring awareness to our community and express gratitude. TackVets is made up of veterans, military spouses and allies who have come together to help us embrace the different side of life that we have seen and use the skills that we have learned along our journey to continue to grow.
Here at Thumbtack we believe in leaning on our strengths, and that is what TackVets is founded on. TackVets has a mission to help our veterans take the amazing skills that are learned while in the military and find a way to use them on the civilian side. No matter how you served our country, we are thankful and look forward to partnering with you to help you find your success. We would love to hear from you. How have you been able to lean on your military career and use your skills in civilian life?
Sounds like a great idea. Much of my workflow/personnel management experience from the Army transferred easily into what I do now as an entrepreneur.
Happy to chat more about it anytime - but Thumbtack was one of the first, and most useful resources I used in transitioning from working for the Army to working for myself.
