Partner organizations’ support will include apprenticeship opportunities, hiring events, digital matching of skills and experiences, employment mentorship and networking with organizations committed to employing veterans, employment referrals and placement, workforce training, and wrap around services within communities for additional support services. VETS selected organizations experienced in providing employment and training services to transitioning service members and their spouses.
The approved partners are American Corporate Partners in New York City; Combined Arms in Houston; Helmets to Hardhats in Washington, DC; Hire Heroes USA in Alpharetta, Georgia; zero8hundred in San Diego; LinkedIn in Sunnyvale, California; RecruitMilitary in Loveland, Ohio; VeteransASCEND in Simpsonville, South Carolina; and VetJobs in Lake St. Louis, Missouri.
Employment Navigators are located at U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force installations in the U.S. and overseas to provide one-on-one employment assistance to transitioning service members, and their spouses. Based on an individual’s needs, Employment Navigators connect them with partner organizations for additional employment services to aid their transition.
