“Transition Conference was an example of how SAME unites the private sector with the government. It directly transitions government knowledge and experience into the private sector to create a synergy in the engineering world! Thank you so much SAME!”

–Christopher Paek, 61 Civil Engineering and Logistics Squadron, Job Seeker

“This is a great opportunity to give back to the military by providing our knowledge and experience of transition out of the military but also providing ideas on where the best opportunities might be given the individual skill sets they possess.”

–Tony Price, Mabbett & Associates, Inc., Recruiter
