TV Extra: Corporate partners assist nonprofits
It’s a great honor to protect, and defend, your country by being a member of the armed forces. But what happens when you return home? Is anyone going to protect you?

He talks about the other veterans groups and corporate partners who are helping them, and what he is looking for in a possible replacement.
Here are some great resources to consider:

Executive transition in a non-profit: Leadership transition can be a time of high vulnerability for a nonprofit organization. Here’s a great book providing practical advice on what to consider.
Looking for a job?: If you have never worked in the non-profit sector, you might not know how different that experience can be from one in the corporate world – both in culture and in posture.
