On May 13th, AliroVets CEO, Robert Archibald, and Chief Veteran Advocate, Evan Guzman, participated in the Carolina’s Executive Roundtable hosted by Blackbaud. The event key note was the Honorable, Joe Cunningham, U.S. Congressman from South Carolina’s 1st District who also sits on the Subcommittee for Economic Opportunity in the House Veterans’ Affair Committee. He spoke about the challenges and high unemployment among military spouses and the need to do more.
“Organizations like AliroVets, which is specifically designed to help connect veterans with opportunities in the private sector, and companies that want to hire veterans are essential” Rep. Joe Cunningham 1st District, South Carolina.
The moderator for the panel discussion was lead by Rick Connolly, Managing Partner at Gravity IT. Among the panel speakers were Smashfly CEO, Thom Kenney, G4S Market Vice President, Michael Nail, Blackbaud, EVP & President, Kevin Gregoire and Chief Veteran Advocate, Evan Guzman. Innovation, culture, talent, tech, and veteran initiatives were among the topics of discussion during the session.
Mr. Guzman informed the attendees that “80% of jobs are not posted on job boards. They are found through word of mouth. AliroVets is helping to increase word of mouth referrals for employers, U.S. service members and military spouses like never before…”
AliroVets will be sponsoring other Executive Roundtable events later this year.
