Veteran affairs is a key focus area of our corporate social
responsibility and pro bono work, and since 2018, Proskauer has
been a proud sponsor of American Corporate Partners
(ACP). Through ACP, our talented employees mentor veterans and
military spouses with career guidance as they transition from the
military to civilian life. On Wednesday, May 25th we met virtually
with nearly 100 ACP mentees and alumni. Karen Carbone,
Proskauer’s Director of Human Resources and Mark Bunbury, our
Associate Director of Diversity & Inclusion led an impactful
workshop on resume writing and interview preparation. They shared
tips for virtual interviews which exploded during the pandemic and
are likely here to stay, as well as best practices for resume
writing. Combined, Mark and Karen have decades of experience in
human resources across the legal and banking industries. The
executives from ACP, who organized the webinar with us, include
Richard Comitz, Senior Vice President and Matthew Peirce,
Operations Associate.

“There are many things our military community excels at,
but oftentimes they have little experience with the skills
necessary to transition from a military career to a civilian
career. Hearing from experts in the industry about how to prepare a
resume, network, and present themselves in interviews is invaluable
during their transition. We are so thankful for our Proskauer
partnership and are grateful that members of Proskauer took time
out of their day to provide amazing tips to our service
members,” said Richard Comitz, Senior Vice President at
American Corporate Partners.

“Military veterans have so many amazing skills that are
highly sought after by employers, yet they often struggle to find
corporate positions. This program is so impactful because it
provides veterans with the opportunity to examine their skills
through the eyes of corporate professionals, who in turn can
suggest the best ways to market those skills. In the process,
corporate professionals are able to share their time and talents
with our veterans, who have given us all so much. It’s a
win-win for both parties,” said Karen Carbone, Director of
Human Resources at Proskauer.
