Welcome to PostMilitary! Here are some quick tips to enhance your experience:
Our vision is to give you the freedom to roam at will during this meetup. We will update this page prior to the event and give you information on the facilitators for each room, and the overall landscape for the meetup.
You can use any device that supports Zoom to navigate to the different breakout rooms and meet people. Make sure your device is updated to the latest revision of the Zoom app. The ability to roam is relatively new.
PC’s and Mac’s provide a more granular look at the breakout rooms. You will be able to see each room and who is in there. Smartphones and iPads will allow you to see the rooms, navigate to the rooms, but you will not be able to drill down to who is in there.
Be Bold! This event is about you! You drive the conversation. You share your experiences.
It’s OK to have a few awkward moments of silence. Do your best to engage your fellow participants? Hopefully, you will spend time in multiple rooms connecting with 5 or 6 people in each. Ask open-ended questions and look for visual queues. You will be able to see when someone wants to ask something…Encourage them.
This is a conversation, not a competition. Interviewing in today’s world is mainly virtual. Take your time, pause, and ask the listeners if they need more details. Practice engaging your audience.
This is a casual meetup. Business casual or less is appropriate.
This is our first event. We believe we have a unique opportunity to make a difference. We look forward to your ideas on how we can do better. There will be a post-event survey with an opportunity for you to help us build this.
