Ever wondered what Navy SEALs 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 assist these elite military veterans find civilian employment.

Through a series of large and small events across the country, we place our candidates in the same room as business decision makers and employers looking to hire. In addition to attending events, our candidates take part in our robust #CommitToONE mentorship program, have a team of professional writers standing by to create a personalized 500 word "Hire Me" profile, and have access to a curated list of job openings.

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.

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.

These guys aren’t just putting together events... they’re building a community.
