Korn Ferry Celebrates Veterans Day with a Free, Intensive Military to Civilian Leadership Program

Goal is to Prepare Transitioning Military Leaders for the Next Phase of their Professional Careers

NEW YORK, Oct, 13, 2014 – As part of its ongoing commitment to helping military leaders transition into successful and rewarding post-military professional careers, Korn Ferry is hosting an intensive leadership and networking program in its New York office.
