    A panel of Veterans who have recently and successfully navigated the civilian job search will share their strategies, challenges and lessons learned.  They will also provide insight into what they would do differently and how they took care of themselves during what can be a very unnerving time.  This is candid feedback from those who have gone before and landed well.
