UMUC to Host Receptions and Employment Webinar in Support of our Nation’s Veterans

Receptions to feature networking opportunities, academic advising, tips for veterans seeking employment

By Danielle Davis ( |   November 8, 2012


In honor of Veterans Day, University of Maryland University College (UMUC)—which was founded in 1947 in part because of the need to educate returning soldiers from World War II—will host receptions and a webinar in support and appreciation of our nation’s veterans.

At each reception, attendees will be able to network with fellow veterans and UMUC alumni, chat with academic advisors and staff from the Veteran Certification Office, and get information about how veteran benefits can be used to achieve education goals.  

Led by federal career counselor and career advisor with UMUC’s Office of Career Services, Gail Sutton, the webinar will help veterans learn how to translate military skills into civilian work skills, calculate military versus civilian pay, and understand veterans’ preference with the federal government.
