Welcome to the Vets2PM DoD SkillBridge program as a Host Employer. Here are suggestions for a successful internship. Now that you have approved a Resident Intern from Vets2PM you (the main POC) will begin receiving email messages from Vets2PM and they will reference this page often. This page contains documents you will need, strategies for success, and it should answer all your questions.
We have designated one POC from your company for each internship. It may be the talent acquisition person, or the hiring manager. When we send you emails, please ensure you forward the message internally to the hiring manager, or the person who needs to read that message.
Plan your internal process for how you will onboard our intern in your system. Some Host Partners onboard their intern as a contractor with $0 pay; others may handle it differently. Think about what works best for your company and use that process.
Identify & educate the intern’s manager on the program and your established processes. Plan for any tools or equipment your intern will need; add them to your email system; add them to email distribution lists; provide them with materials you would send any employee, i.e., uniform items, access badge, etc.; whatever you need to do to ensure their onboarding process is smooth.
Intake Process for New Internships: Use the attached Internship Intake Form for each unique internship you would like us to fill. This form provides us everything we need to know to identify candidates, complete the candidate application for command approval, and properly invoice you once the intern begins.
As an additional resource we published a Facebook group named Vets2PM SkillBridge Exchange. We utilize this page to share your SkillBridge internship (and job postings, if applicable) opportunities. Feel free to join the group and share anything you’d like to reach active duty, transitioning, veterans, and military spouses.
