Lunch and Learn: Reasons I Won't Hire You

Monday, January 23, 2017
11:00 a.m.

Location: In the MVRC (57/2700)


Veterans and service members possess the skills and experience most employers crave. Yet military professionals don’t always get the job, or even the interview, because of their inability to adapt or effectively communicate their skill sets. Learn the top reasons why a company WON’T hire you, and how to “fix” your resume, interview responses and mindset so you can land the position. Stephen Baughn, U.S. General Services Administration and UNF alum, will present. FREE LUNCH will be provided but you must R.S.V.P. to mvrc@unf.edu or (904) 620-5131.

Entrepreneurship Training for Veterans (ETV): Franchising

Thursday, February 23, 2017
: 8:30 a.m. | Event: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Location: University Center

Cost: Free


One out of every seven franchise businesses are owned and operated by veterans of the U.S. military. * Is a Franchise Business Right for You?


  • Are you curious about what it takes to be your own boss?
  • Do you want some control over your future work and lifestyle?
  • Are you looking to build wealth for the future?
  • If you’ve answered yes to one or more of these questions, then franchise business ownership may be right for you!


We invite all Veteran’s and their spouses to join us for an informative one-day workshop to include:


  • The key differences between starting a business from scratch, buying an existing business or investing in a franchise business.
  • How do people fund a new business? What might the options be for me?
  • How might I fit into business ownership?
  • Get first-hand knowledge about what it is like to look for the right franchise from franchisees who have done it.
  • Learn from some franchisors how their system works.
  • Bring your questions!


This event is open to anyone who has served in the military.



◊ Free breakfast, lunch and parking is provided!
