Why We Do What We Do

76% of the thousands of post-911 military veterans surveyed by Military Transition.Org “completely agree” or “somewhat agree” that their transition from military-to-civilian occupation was “stressful”.

And at Vets2PM, we believe them! That’s because our own transitions from the Navy, Army, and Air Force were “stressful”, “confusing”, and “painful” as well!

That’s exactly why though, in only 6 years, we at Vets2PM have helped over 4,000 service members and veterans and counting achieve meaningful, lucrative post-service careers.

During that time, we have found that a lot of these feelings stem from 2 primary sources:

1. Reimagining oneself professionally is challenging because many veterans don’t know what civilian career field options they have based on the knowledge, skills, and abilities that they already possess.

2. They struggle to translate their military experience clearly and effectively into civilian experience.

That’s why we created and share our proven process and “GO-BAG” of free and paid occupation transition tools with transitioning service members and veterans!

OUR MISSION

We help Military Veterans achieve Meaningful, Lucrative Careers by: 1. Inspiring them with a clear, meaningful, lucrative end-state as a career project, human resources, cyber security, or general manager.  2. Train them to deliver project and operational success and obtain associated management credentials; 3. Prepare them for CIVDIV reintegration with professional resumes, interview skills, and social media savvy; 4. Place them into meaningful, lucrative management careers.

OUR VISION

We will be the premier professional management trainer of choice for the Military, Defense, Labor, and Veteran communities; and we will be a leader in the movement to help military Members, Veterans, and Retirees make a successful transition to civilian life after their honorable and dedicated service to their country.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We only took off the uniform, not our oath to our Brothers and Sisters; not one of them gets left behind.

OUR VALUES

Integrity – We believe in honesty and transparency; all of our communication and interactions with others are always truthful, transparent, and clear. We treat everyone with respect and dignity.

Commitment – We believe that our success is measured only by how successful we help those trusting us become; we always keep our commitments to our clients, customers, team mates, processes and systems, company image and culture, and profession.

Excellence – We believe in doing the best we can at everything we attempt; we constantly demonstrate responsibility, accountability, and ownership for all timely, accurate work products we produce. We continually seek improvement in our processes, technology, relationships, and ultimately our character. We strive to ensure that our clients receive the absolute best training, preparation, support, and customer service available anywhere.

We are all decorated Veterans, Veteran spouses, or Veteran children, successful project managers, and proven educators, meaning you have access to the best possible cadre and staff!
