On April 7, MPC and our Talent Acquisition team partnered with the United Service Organizations (USO) to host a two-part, in-person and virtual, career session designed to provide information on career opportunities at MPC and help service members successfully transition into the workplace. The free sessions are available to veterans, service members and their families worldwide through the USO Pathfinder Transition Program, which MPC and the Marathon Petroleum Foundation donated $300,000 to in 2021.
The in-person event was held at MPC’s San Antonio Office, where local veterans and service members gathered to learn about career opportunities with our company. “It was an honor to partner with Marathon Petroleum for our first in-person event since the start of COVID,” said RT McClain, Sr. Transition Manager – USO San Antonio. “The staff and members of the HONOR Veterans employee network did an amazing job sharing information about the organization. Because of the support of your company, we are able to continue fueling service members’ transition journeys.”
“As a retired Army Reserve officer, I have a lot of appreciation for the resources available to help service members transition to civilian life,” said MPC Transportation and Rail Vice President Mike Johnson. “I am proud MPC supports such a worthy cause and recognizes the value, diversity and character service members bring to our company.”
“The event was an excellent way for HONOR members to connect with transitioning service members. My discussions with the soldiers, sailors and airmen in attendance reminded me of the importance of their work and all the skills and potential they can bring to MPC. I look forward to participating in future events,” said MPC Rail Operations Director John Hack.
Later that evening, service members, veterans and their spouses from around the country joined the virtual event hosted by MPC in partnership with the USO. MPC Vice President ESG and Stakeholder Engagement Karen Beadle provided a welcome message followed by an introduction to MPC careers. The event closed with a panel of MPC Veteran employee network members sharing their career experiences and offering advice on transitioning into civilian life and the workplace.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the USO in support of the Pathfinder Transition Program,” said MPC Vice President Talent Acquisition and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Germaine Hunter. “One of our goals at MPC is to leverage the unique skills and talents of each and every person. Our employees who have served in the military support the work that we do in ways that make our entire organization stronger. It is an honor to be able to support them during their transition to civilian life.”
