Why Hire A Vets2PM Veteran?
Our Talent Bench contains only educated, credentialed and proven experienced leaders. Many are PMP® trained or certified, PMBOK® Guide trained, steeped in civilian project management good practice, and ready to bring real-world success to your organization on day 1!
Additionally, our candidates are decidedly different from the average veteran candidate you are used to seeing: they have successfully managed extremely challenging projects for many years; in austere, resource-constrained environments; with the most demanding stakeholders and objectives: failure is not an option. They employ best, good, and emerging practices consistently, they make tough decisions timely and accurately, they artfully build, coach, and lead high-performing teams and stakeholders, and they see political, technical, and cultural challenges as opportunities to grow organizational success, diversity, and capabilities.
Finally, many of them still possess active security clearances you can leverage immediately while saving significant resources.
PurpleX, our cultivated, proprietary candidate database is a unique tool available to hiring managers and talent acquisition professionals, and is made up of thousands of candidates, trained and/or credentialed in the PMP® & other highly sought-after industry certifications, possessing breadth of expertise across Technical, Business, and Operational disciplines. PurpleX candidates are vetted, motivated, flexible, and interested in exploring roles with leading civilian organizations and government contractors. PurpleX grows by +/-60 candidates per month.

Here’s what our Employer customers have to Say
Vets2PM helped me translate the military vernacular into civilian language. The best analogy I have come up with is this: when someone buys a house they may have found the perfect place but not go through with the purchase because of something as simple as the wrong color paint inside. If the seller would put a new coat of paint on the walls the house becomes more appealing. Vets2PM helps the veteran “paint” their career with a different color making them more appealing to potential employers. I didn’t learn new skills, instead I learned how to present my experience in a more palatable way to civilians.
Apart from receiving my PMP® certification, the resume service and career skills help has been the biggest continuing help for me in my job search and placement.
Now after seeing several veterans transition I would say you need to take an honest assessment of your military career. Look at what you did in the military, get your PMP® certification, and find a job in a field that interests you. Project management can be a lifelong career or the stepping stone you need to get into a career field where you can truly shine as a veteran.
I did it. I just passed the PMP® yesterday! After a month of hardcore studying, and long weekend of cramming I passed the test. I can't recommend the Andy Crowe "how to pass the test" book highly enough.
That test was easily the hardest test I have ever taken. It puts everything I did to get my MBA to shame. The fact that there is two right answers to each question, and you have to pick the 'best' makes it a real challenge. When I pushed the end exam button, I was anything but sure of my results. Luckily, I passed above target in all 5 process groups!
Thanks for the excellent instruction in Yokota. Several of your stand-out phrases helped me in my studies and exam choices.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank your team for the incredible content at Vets2PM. But, I especially wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate Cathy's time, effort, and energy in assembling my professional resume. This piece of paper makes me look like a water walker!
I know she's busy -- I hope she gets an assistant, a corner office, and a raise soon, haha.
Seriously, though. Thank you for everything from your team.
