The Honor Foundation: NEXT – One-Day Job Opportunity

About the NEXT Series

NEXT is a unique conference that brings together four very distinct American brands: elite military, global business, top tier education, and social entrepreneurs. The purpose of bringing together these driving forces of innovation onto a single platform is for meaningful participation and social engagement among San Diego’s thought leaders and change makers to begin new conversations around the new military professionalism that surrounds us today.

There is a larger mission behind these talks – one of national urgency and great importance. Our military forces have adapted to overcome challenges unlike anything taken from our past. They are principled warriors, highly educated, service orientated and ready to continue their service in purpose driven organizations. Now, how will education and business adapt to a market change in military experience and professionalism?

The NEXT Series, powered by The Honor Foundation: A Transition Institute for Elite Military and The UCSD Rady School of Management, will launch annual discussions hoping to create a strong dialogue around a new breed of diverse military professionals. These two organizations have partnered to provide innovative solutions around the transition of these new military professionals. The Honor Foundation & The Rady School believe very passionately in that the best idea comes from several ideas. San Diego thrives as a community of ideas and technology looking to disrupt and create ever-evolving progress. Please join us as we launch a Talk Series found nowhere else.

LAUNCH Program


Jumpstart Your Entry Into the Workplace

UC San Diego has always been an innovator and leader in higher education. Now we’re paving the way to your successful bridge into the modern workplace.

The LAUNCH program is designed for full-time students who want to ensure their first step into the workplace puts them on the right path to career success. LAUNCH should be done concurrently with university study, ideally during a student’s junior and senior years.

As of Fall 2011, active undergraduate juniors and seniors have the opportunity to receive grant money to cover most course fees for most specialized and professional certificates that Extension has to offer.

Each LAUNCH student works with a coach who acts as a mentor throughout the program. The coach and student meet quarterly to identify their unique skills and career focus, develop those important “soft-skills” employers are looking for in today’s job candidates and act as a resource to services/programs to help make the difference in landing that all-important first job after graduation.

Why Take LAUNCH?
  • Jumpstart to some of the most promising jobs today
  • Practical knowledge from experts in the field
  • Learn side-by-side with working professionals
  • Document evidence of additional, focused study
  • Increase confidence through personal coaching
  • Stand out as a more competitive job candidate

This program is offered in cooperation with UCSD Academic Affairs, Undergraduate Education. The Launch program seeks to compliment a students undergraduate study and transition into the workforce upon graduation.

Applications will open soon for Winter 2014, so check the website!
