In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Glen Ferrarotto, founder of Ironside Recruiting, joins the Defence Connect team to discuss his journey from army through to business owner.
Holding several jobs along the way, Ferrarotto details the difficulties he had to overcome in finding employment in his post-service life, and shares some helpful tips for Australia’s veteran community.
The podcast also dives into veteran organisations such as the RSL, and how community groups help to foster a network to support post-military employment.
