Contact us at editorial@gijobs.com I'm so grateful for my network. Having spent more than 10 years in recruiting, combined with my commitment to mentorship, I have earned a credibility within the military community that money can't buy. Every single day my network grows by service members, veterans, and spouses coming to me for advice, mentorship or job placement. Engagement is the most important thing about having a powerful network. Numbers don't mean much. Activity does. When you take action for others, or inspire them to take action, that's when you make a real difference. My best advice is to get a mentor, or three. Start your mentorship as early as possible and give your career the preparation it deserves. Give yourself the time to find the right chemistry with a mentor. There is so much advice out there, you really need to have someone you can trust, who you relate to, to give you advice – and to listen. Too often, we skip over the fundamental steps of figuring out what's important, and taking the time to discover what we really want to do is so important. Mentorship covers all of that, and the possibilities are limitless. HOW DID YOU GROW SUCH A HUGE NETWORK THAT'S EXTREMELY ENGAGED? WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR TRANSITIONING SERVICE MEMBERS AND OUR VETERAN AUDIENCE? LATE LAST YEAR G.I. JOBS LAUNCHED a new honor that recognizes veterans who are having a huge impact in the veteran space: The Veteran Influencer of the Month. These veterans are highly engaged in social networks and use their extensive influence to help America's military, veterans and their families excel in the civilian sector. Each month, we will highlight one of these veterans. Natalie Oliverio is the Veteran Influencer of the Month for November 2018. A Navy veteran who served from 2001- 2005, Oliverio launched Military Talent Partners in May 2018 to coach and mentor veterans, military spouses and gold-star family members in their quest for career success.
