With roughly 250,000 service members leaving the military each year, there is a growing talent pool of individuals who are career oriented, driven & experienced. One of the main issues they face upon separating from the service is that while they have an incredible set of education, experiences & skills, they have no idea how to translate them. This leads to them losing out on opportunities or in some cases not reaching their full potential.
The great news is that organizations like SHIFT are helping service members (active duty & veterans) from both the enlisted & officer side of the house to translate their military history into something credible in the eyes of employers. They are also opening doors to DOD Skillbridge fellowships & meaningful jobs with organizations like Cisco, the MLB & Uber.
