Our Process

1. Veteran Inspiration

You have in-demand skills civilian employers need. You just need some inspiration and translation because you might not know how your current skills apply.

2. Get Certified & Credentialed

We use our decades of experience in developing, managing, and sourcing world-class training to ensure successful and in-demand certifications employers and civilian organizations need and want. Let us handle the research for you. If we don’t develop it, we find it.

3. Civilian Professional Development

It is important to walk, talk, and look professional in ways civilian organizations understand. They don’t get deployments, TDYs, or PCSs but We do! Certifications are good but you need a great resume, social profile, and interview skills to get the job, we can help.

4. Lifetime Placement Services

We proudly provide a lifetime of placement services with our proprietary, cultivated, and curated database we call “PurpleX.” Psst. joining this database is free! Click “Learn More” below to add yourself by clicking the register tab and filling in your information.
