Profiles International Sponsors MET Montreal Conference to Support Veterans

Waco, TX. October 23, 2014 -Talent management solutions provider, Profiles International, will sponsor the first Quebec Conference for the Military Employment Transition (MET) program October, 29th – 30th at the Régiment de Maisonneuve in Montreal, Quebec.

At the event, more than thirty national and provincial companies and educational institutions will gather with a common focus – to hire Canadian Armed Forces Veterans and Reservists. Attendees of the event will consist of employer partners, transitioning military members and veterans. Several high-demand panel discussions will take place, where veterans and employer partners can meet one-on-one and network.

“Military men and women possess some amazing qualities that Corporate Canada needs,” said Blake Goldring, chairman and founder of Canada Company. “When you ‘Hire-a-Vet,’ you hire someone who is professional, dedicated, loyal, and above all mission-focused. I know, because I hire vets.”

Other major corporations sponsoring and attending the event include; Target Canada (Platinum Sponsor), McDonald’s Canada, Accenture, Bell Canada, Honeywell, Walmart Canada, and Banque Nationale.

The event is complimentary to attend, but attendees must register in advance for planning purposes.

Craig Wood, vice president enterprise solutions at Profiles International will be in attendance.
