VETLANTA connects skilled veterans with employers - UPS

UPSer leads networking and community service club

What’s new:
VETLANTA is working to transition veterans and their families to civilian life by connecting them with employers like UPS that embrace military backgrounds.

Why it matters: Job skills acquired from military experience can sometimes be difficult to translate into civilian positions.

“I had all this great leadership and management experience, but I had never written a resume,” said Lloyd Knight, a 20-year U.S. Air Force veteran and founder of VETLANTA. “But I had the exact qualifications UPS was looking for, such as a security clearance and load planning experience.”

That’s why he organized a group of veterans from Atlanta-area Fortune 500 companies to educate employers and support transitioning veterans.
