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.
