The Hire MI Vet Mentorship Program provides individualized career readiness support for Veterans, focusing on resumes, cover letters, networking, interviewing, elevator speech, and job search assistance. This volunteer position will consist of mentoring the Veteran through their career search. This includes all the career readiness support details in the previous sentence.
