Sleepy’s and Darkhorse Helping Our Veterans

We’re very excited about our recent partnership with Darkhorse Benefits, an organization that focuses on helping veterans and active duty special operations warriors get assistance and support in their search for a meaningful post-service career.

On May 4th, 2016, Darkhorse and Sleepy’s hosted a Veteran Career Fair and Workshop at our headquarters located in Hicksville, NY. This exclusive event provided key tips, tactics and strategies on applying military skills in business, interviewing skills, resume building, networking, and social media.  “Not a lot of companies help military veterans look and apply for jobs. Darkhorse is a free program that provides useful information and opportunities to find jobs at companies like yours. This kind of opportunity is really great for us.” said a veteran attendee.

Those interested in career opportunities in Information Technology, Operations, Customer Care, Sales, etc.  also had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with some of our hiring managers who were ready to interview all veterans seeking employment in these fields.
