A mentoring program sponsored by the University of Colorado Denver and the Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce has helped all of its 87 military veteran participants find jobs since the initiative was launched last year. “Boots to Suits” links veterans with mentors in the business world, provides internships and offers job leads, reports CBS4 News. One of the biggest benefits the initiative provides is a professional network, says program director Izzy Abbass. “Because they haven’t been part of the community, they really don’t have the network connections and the ties in the community to find out who they should be talking to as they seek to enter employment,” Abbass said.
