About Career Recon

Career Recon is a great next step for a Veteran or military spouse in transition out of the military. The intense 2-week workshop is held at the Nashville Veteran Service Center and will equip participants with the working knowledge they need to more easily find their niche in the civilian job world. The skills learned are universal but the networking is focused exclusively on Middle Tennessee. Upon completion, each person will receive their Certificate of Business Acumen from Belmont University's Jack C. Massey College of Business as well as connections to members of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce. Participating employers and panelists include HCA Healthcare, Tractor Supply Company, Ingram Industries, Nashville Predators, Nashville Soccer Club, and Bank of America.​
