Veteran Students & Alumni

The Toppel Career Center team is thankful for your service and commitment to our country. Through your military experience, you have gained a myriad of transferable skills that are highly valued by employers outside the military world, such as leadership, communication, adaptability, multicultural competence, technical skills, problem-solving, foreign language skills, discipline, responsibility, dedication, and many more. We recognize that as a veteran, you may face unique challenges as you transition from the military to civilian life and try to translate your military experience and training into skills required for civilian jobs.

The resources and articles provided throughout this identity-based page offer access to platforms and valuable information aimed to meet your unique job search, networking, interviewing, and career needs as a veteran.
