Last week’s Student Veterans of America National Conference brought together more than 1,700 student veterans and administrators from across the country.
Hirepurpose was on hand to talk about jobs and internships, and while we were there, we asked attendees to tweet the best piece of advice they could give to other SVA chapters.
Here were the top 10 tips in 140 characters or less:

@HirepurposeJobs The best advice: Network, network, network! Get your communities involved and give people something to be excited about!

@HirepurposeJobs the best advice for other SVA chapters would be to keep the open communication lines all year, not just school hours.

@HirepurposeJobs SVA chapters should above all ensure they're providing members with a clear, motivating incentive to join and be involved.

@HirepurposeJobs ALWAYS exercise UNITY. In UNITY there's strength. W/strength anything's possible! UNITY/STRENGTH is a universal language

Chapter leaders: Strive to make an impact and then make yourself obsolete. Pass that torch and make a ripple. https://t.co/nYrz3IRoAz
