From a strong work ethic, resiliency, and patience to the ability to perform in high-pressure situations and effectively communicate with people from different backgrounds, veterans bring a unique skillset to the civilian workforce.
Learning how to demonstrate these marketable skills to potential employers alone can be difficult. A mentor can provide invaluable guidance.

Over half (57%) of Louisiana children lived in financial hardship pre-pandemic — the HIGHEST rate in the nation — according to a new report from Louisiana United Ways, United For ALICE and Entergy Corp.
"ALICE in Focus: Children" shows we must be relentless in investing in children and families so every child has the resources they need to succeed.
The Arbor Day Foundation has again recognized Entergy for proper tree care and vegetation management by naming the company a 2022 Tree Line USA utility.
The Tree Line USA program recognizes electric utilities for implementing best practices that protect and develop America's urban tree canopy. The program is a partnership between the Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters, which promotes delivering safe and reliable electricity while maintaining healthy community forests.
When nationwide protests for social justice began in spring 2020, Entergy’s leaders wanted to model behaviors they desired among employees by giving everyone a glimpse of the conversations they had been having regarding race. This led to the Office of the Chief Executive Town Hall on Race and Equality.
Moderated by the general counsel, the 90-minute webcast included every member of the executive leadership team, including the CEO. Some 6,300 Entergy employees—45% of its workforce—watched the town hall, which generated more than 360 positive comments.
