WHERE THE TOP 1% GO JOB HUNTING

NEXT BIG EVENT (EM):

 

ABOUT US

EM SF 2018-12.jpg

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 employment opportunities.

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 given recruiting access to Elite Meet members have been selected into our Hiring Partner program (apply below), have become one of our sponsors (sponsorship button below) or both.
