ONU Monthly Newsletter
Greetings!
It's about that time again! Fall is approaching us quickly and ONU is staying busy with Cohort 27 Graduates and helping all of our Veterans get employed in the business community. There's no trickery involved with how highly skilled and educated our veterans are, so please let us know if you are interested in any of our most recent graduates. We hope this newsletter will help you stay updated on ONU's fall news and upcoming events. Enjoy!
ONU in the News
FOX 30 Action News Jax made an appearance at our Cohort 27 Graduation hosted at Black Knight, Inc. After the ceremony, Lorena Inlclan interviewed our veterans about their journey through the ONU Program. Click ONU on the News to see graduate Jonathan Boyd's comments about his experience as well as more about our program. Following graduation, our eight veterans are moving on to the next part of our program, Enhancing the Uniform, which facilitates the process of getting in front of hiring managers, and putting the skills learned to work to find their dream careers! If you are interested in interviewing Jonathan or any of our other veterans, please contact us.
