VetsinTech + VetForce @ Dreamforce 2014

VetsinTech + VetForce @ Dreamforce 2014

VetsinTech was very excited to be a big part of Salesforce.com's launch of VetForce at this year's Dreamforce conference.  ViT trained 20 veterans to become certified Salesforce Administrators during the week of Sept 29th, 2014 and our cohort plus many more from the VetsinTech network attended VetForce sessions on "Veterans Day at Dreamforce" on Wednesday Oct 15th!   Read more about Salesforce.com's effort to get 10,000 veterans hired and VetsinTech role in the efforts here: http://www.cnbc.com/id/102087358
One of the highlights of the entire week was being able to fly with 50 execs from the Dreamforce conference in 2 Chinook helicopters down to Moffett airfield in Mt. View CA!! We were all able  to meet the 129th Rescue Wing of California Air and Army National Guard to learn more about their Work for Warriors program.  HueyVets flew even more of the ViT veterans at Moffett so they were able to meet tech execs and potential employers.  See our pics here.
