The Veteran eMentor Program leverages the internet to create a dynamic information sharing, learning and support community that extends far beyond the veteran's current network. Veteran protégés can receive personalized job search/career guidance, advice, support and inspiration from more experienced veterans, career mentors and veteran-friendly employers.
The Veteran eMentor Program is a partnership of ACADEMYWOMEN and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's HIRING OUR HEROES Initiative.The program is open to all veterans. Representatives of veteran-friendly firms and other career professionals may participate as career mentors.

How It Works
Mentors and Proteges start by completing an online profile. From there, proteges can search for and select a mentor. When the mentor accepts the protege's invitation, the relationship begins.
The pair work together to establish goals, develop an action plan, and measure progress. They communicate primarily online, but may decide to talk on the phone or even meet in person.
The Veteran eMentor Program is powered by:
Jaime joined Veteran eMentor and immediately located two experienced corporate mentors who helped him strengthen his resume, interview approach and job searching skills. Jaime says his mentoring experience caused him to develop “…more precise strategies to apply for jobs"; he now researches the target company and position before applying to ensure that both are a good fit for him. The mentoring Jaime has experienced through Veteran eMentor has given him more confidence which led to more energy and focus in his job search and more clarity on what he wants to do professionally.
According to Jaime, "Veterans should join eMentor to … develop a strategy and a career plan for what they want to do." He encourages veterans to "...find a mentor to... help you from their own experiences. This is VERY valuable!"
