Elite Veterans. Premier Industries. Real Results.




10x Your Potential


Access Top 1% of Military


Give Your Time and Talent


Ever wondered what Navy SEALs, fighter pilots and other elite veterans do once they leave the military?

They go job hunting, just like everybody else looking for a new career. Except special operators and fighter pilots have spent on average 10 or more prime income earning years out of today’s offices and businesses and inside of combat units that demand all of their time, leaving no room for post-military career exploration until their separation is upon them; finding their place in the civilian world can be as big a challenge as anything they have faced in training or in combat.

Elite Meet was founded in 2017 to connect these elite veterans with high quality, screened employment opportunities.

EM Membership for veterans includes:

  • FREE for life, and we even cover your flight, hotel, food & ground transportation at certain EM events

  • Access to executives and decision makers

  • An engaged internal channel for crowdsourcing career needs

  • Mentorship program for short or long term runways

  • LinkedIn profile review and overhaul

  • Updated job board

  • “Shoot a flare” option -- Prompts an immediate diversion of all EM resources to assist you

  • Free “Training The Street” Udemy course

*EM Hiring Partners are NOT charged any placement fees.*

EM puts the work in upfront, vetting and prepping their members, so Hiring Partners don’t have to. To keep this service free, EM Hiring Partners who successfully hire and onboard an EM member will be asked to give a standard, tax-deductible donation after three months of successful employment.

Companies that are interested in taking advantage of this truly unique recruiting opportunity must submit an online application to be considered.

Prior to this event I had submitted 50 resumes leading to only one interview. After Elite Meet, I submitted one resume, and got an interview.
— Navy SWCC
EM fills a vital and often overlooked niche critical to many transitioning vets: it provides direct access to C-suite leaders in an informal setting.
— Navy SEAL
Most of us do not have time for a 2 month training program, but need more than a few hours of class on a Navy base. Three days in a different city is the perfect balance.
— Navy SWCC
Consultation on media foot print, maximizing LinkedIn, working with recruiters, perfecting resumes, practicing interviewing tips, and even compensation negotiation are all hugely helpful insights which I gained from Elite Meet.
— Navy SEAL
These guys aren’t just putting together events... they’re building a community.
— Navy F18 Pilot
