"Where Careers Begin after the Military."
Welcome to NAVNET. Here’s the basic in brief to give you a better idea of how we do what we do…
We're a group of current & former military members whose primary purpose is to assist each other in career transitions. We get together for breakfast on the third Friday of each month at Trellises Garden Grille in the Town & Country Hotel in Mission Valley. We start at 0700 and are usually out of there by 0815. We order from a special breakfast menu and pass the bill around for contributions when it comes. We're a rather casual group so the uniform of the day is whatever you need to wear for the rest of your day.
We also maintain an Excel spreadsheet with contact information for our 5,500+ members. We use this information to make personal contact with each other to gather information on specific companies, individual transition experiences, and the general job market conditions. We DON'T use it to shotgun resumes or to solicit any other types of business.
We also maintain an email distribution list. I use it to remind everyone of the monthly breakfast and to provide a revised copy of the spreadsheet. I also use it to distribute periodic job opportunities as they become visible to me. You'll receive a link to the revised version of this spreadsheet each month embedded in the monthly breakfast reminder email. The best way to maximize the value of this information is to download the spreadsheet and sort it by company. Then you can make individual contact with NAVNET members in companies you're interested in working for. Ask them for an informational interview. That way, you gain knowledge of the types of talent they're current looking for and they become aware of your availability.
