Symposium on the All Volunteer Force

When the United States ended the draft and moved to an all-volunteer military in 1973, most political and military leaders assumed that if the United States again fought a major, long-lasting war the nation would reactivate the draft. But that didn’t happen: the U.S. fought the long and costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with an all-volunteer force (AVF), even as service members were deployed for multiple tours of duty. This symposium, in the wake of those wars, evaluates the AVF. How well has it worked? Will it work in the future?

On April 27, 2017, key national policy makers, former government officials, military officers, and scholars who have drawn different conclusions about the relative successes and failures of the AVF will gather at William & Mary to hold a frank conversation about a critical piece of our national defense.

"Template Toolbox: Craft Your Easy Breezy Elevator Pitch"

Elevator pitches will always be a necessary evil of the job hunt. We can change the name, eliminate the elevator, and avoid the awkward intros – but that, “So tell me about yourself/what do you do?/who are you?” question is inevitable, and we know it.


The author of this article has narrowed the elevator pitch down to four key pieces that you can customize, personalize, and play with to fit all your networking and new job searching needs.

"12 Sneaky Questions You Can Ask To Uncover Company Culture"

If you want to know what it’s like to work for a company, you can’t exactly waltz up to a recruiter and ask “What’s your company culture like?” So how do you figure out whether the environment of the company fits your needs? Read this article!.

This week's tool is Vault.

  1. Log into Tribe Careers.
  2. Scroll down on the right until you see "External Job Resources" and click Vault Guides. This will automatically send you to Vault fully logged in. Vault has tons of resources, but the one I want to highlight is the career guide books.
  3. If you type in the search feature "Vault Career Guide for Nonprofit Careers," a beautiful and free PDF book comes up that gives you the inside scoop to how to get into that field, what it's really like, and trends.
  4. Not interested in nonprofits? Vault pretty much has every career field, and they do an excellent job keeping their material up-to-date.
