One of the most important aspects in the network phase is finding a mentor. One of these platforms is Veterati! Here is the verbiage from their site. “Join thousands of Service Members, Veterans, and Military Spouses in setting up free 1-hr mentorship phone calls with successful professionals. We’re the only Veteran Mentorship Platform to let you choose your own mentors and as many as you would like; our average member selects 4 mentors, and some mentees have 25+ mentors! Create a free profile at Veterati to get unlimited access to thousands of volunteer mentors: CEOs, recruiters, entrepreneurs, managers, Veterans & civilians alike.”
Company: American Corporate Partners
Another honorable mention is American Corporate Partners! Like Veterati, they are here to help you with a myriad of topics linking you with a mentor for one year! Each month the mentor checks up on your progress to see where you are at.
