The VETS - Beyond the Uniform program has been developed by military veterans with the specific goal of helping veterans make a successful journey from the military into the civilian workforce.
We provide mentoring & training services to help enhance core military skills into the skills needed for success!
There are 100's of transition programs available to transitioning military veterans. There are so many, that it sometimes gets confusing trying to identify the differences and benefits of each one.
So we made a strategic decision to NOT offer the same "cookie cutter" services as the other transition programs offer.
VETS - Beyond the Uniform's mission is to build upon the veteran's military skills and the skills taught by military transition programs. Our goal is to improve the veteran's chances for successful long term careers by providing veterans with one-on-one coaching & mentoring, and access to workshops & online training that cover over 200 skills-sets used in the civilian workforce.
Our program is designed to work as a stand-alone veteran's mentoring program, or as a support program for existing military transition programs.
Our theory is that veterans have received basic military training and have been provided the additional occupational training required to perform in their military roles. However, even the best trained veterans may be missing the key skills needed in order to successfully integrate into today’s corporate workforce.
Today’s labor market is changing – Veterans remain a highly desired talent
and bring a mix of needed hard and soft skills to every employer!
They leave the military with a strong set of acquired leadership, management, and occupational skills. These skills that supported veterans during their military careers are top notch and employers want this talent in their workforce.
The rate of first year turnover among American veterans entering the civilian workforce is alarming at over 45%. Hiring veterans has become easy, but getting them to stay beyond the first year of employment has been quite a challenge for a number of reasons; including the failure to successfully integrate into the civilian organization.
The VETS - Beyond the Uniform program is a FREE training program developed by military veterans who have already made successful transitions from the military service into the civilian work force.
Our mission is to help veterans succeed in their new careers. Setting you on a path to a new career is one thing... but helping you to be successful should be the goal!
Unlike a lot of the other programs, VETS - Beyond the Uniform provides veterans transitioning from the military service over 200 free soft-skills training workshops, webinars, and self-paced online training to help them successfully integrate and to be effective in the business world and civilian workforce.
We support each veteran's transformation with workshops, webinars, group training, self-paced learning, and 1 on 1 mentoring and coaching.
We provide the required skills and eliminate the culture shock between military & corporate cultures.
We’ve been there and we know what it takes to be successful in the civilian world!
