Career Prep

Industry Recon Program

Point of Contact: Ken Nahrwold, Veterans Support Coordinator

The Office of Veteran Success has created the Industry Recon Program designed to help veterans looking to understand more about the career they would like to pursue after graduation. USF student veterans are given the opportunity to learn first-hand from local business professionals and community leaders on how to best prepare for employment after graduation.

The Industry Recon Program encompasses 4 main areas: Mentoring, Networking, Employment/Internships, and Job Shadowing. This program is flexible and allows student veterans and business professionals the space to create their own timelines and levels of commitment. The USF Veteran's Industry Recon Program affords the Tampa Bay community the unique opportunity to bridge the gap for the men and women who have served our nation.

Program Goals:

  • Provide USF student veterans with opportunities to develop relationships with successful local business and community leaders that will enhance their ability to transition from USF into the local workforce.
  • Enable USF student veterans to increase their knowledge of the local job market, employer expectations, and skills necessary to be successful.
  • Increase the veteran's confidence in their knowledge, skills, and abilities, as well as their ability to succeed in the local civilian workforce.
