From AmeriVet Securities, a service-disabled veteran-owned broker-dealer in New York City, we bring you “Compass Check” – a podcast created by veterans, for veterans.
The military uses a compass to navigate air, land and sea – now, “Compass Check” is here to help you navigate your transition into the corporate workforce.
Our goal is to reach military veterans and members of the veteran community, empower and connect them with a multitude of resources that will ultimately set them up for success after leaving the military.
Have you ever thought about deleting your social media? Well, today’s Compass Check guest did just that! During this episode, I sit down with Navy veteran David Nava, Principal Solutions Engineer, at Salesforce. We discuss his transition journey out of the military plus the opportunities available for the veteran community at Salesforce.
Salesforce is a cloud-based software company that provides customer relationship management software and applications to their network of customers, companies, developers, and business partners. They develop a diverse infrastructure of software products designed to help teams from different industries -- including marketing, sales, IT, commerce and customer service -- connect with their customers.
Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, Salesforce has offices all around the country, and the world to support over 55,000 employees.
