CFA Society of New York 5th Annual Veterans in Transition Symposium
The 5th Annual Thinking Beyond the Transition for Veterans event explored how veterans focused on financial fields can better take inventory of their strengths, preferences, and tolerances to make fulfilling choices that give them greater staying power in their Wall Street roles. When veterans feel they are making meaningful contributions, employers are much more likely to see the lasting benefits of veteran hiring. Following opening remarks and a keynote, the panel shared examples of how they leveraged the skills learned while in military service to transition to lasting successful careers in finance. Our Head of Veteran Engagement, Mercedes Elias, spoke on the panel and offered her insights into the transition into finance.
