            “It is an honor to be able to offer my skills and experience to people who have given so much for our country,” said Ben Talbert, CEO of Better Than Found. “Although we don’t all share the same career paths, I have experienced the confusion and anxiety associated with career transitions. The Networking Committee offers a resource for SEALs who have identified potential civilian career options and need a network to help them connect. Every day I evaluate, assess, coach, and match great candidates with great companies and I look forward to using my skills to help SEALs who have already achieved greatness in one career find the right mission in the civilian world.”
