Please Note: Submitting a SkillBridge interest form does not guarantee a successful internship match with a host company. Submitting a SkillBridge interest form is the first step and allows us to collect the essential details required to assist in facilitating your placement with one of our host companies. To ensure efficiency, it is essential for you to take the proactive steps listed below!
To be considered for our internships, you must express interest by applying/completing an internship application (as outlined below), participate in interviews with our host companies, and subsequently await notification regarding your selection status. (This is a very similar process to getting a job, so the learning has already begun!)
- Start applying for internships when you are three (3) months from your available SkillBridge start date. If you apply too soon many companies are not able to consider you, as they are generally looking for people who can start as soon as possible.
- If your command wants you to give them more notice than three (3) months, feel free to apply earlier; but we may contact you to discuss.
- Check your email frequently including your spam/junk folder, as we will contact you via email if our host companies wish to schedule an interview with you. Additionally, once you express your interest in our program, you will start receiving regular emails from Vets2PM. Occasionally, our messages may end up in your spam folder, so you can search for ‘Vets2PM’ to locate our emails.
If you have found your own host company and they are not SkillBridge Approved, Vets2PM can facilitate the internship for you and your host company. You should send an email introduction to us and your host company so we can schedule a call with them to discuss how our program works and how we can facilitate the internship for you both.
TIP: Do not put all your eggs in one basket. While we would love to place you into an internship with one of our host companies, we suggest you also look at other providers / approved companies to ensure you match with an internship that is right for you.
TIP: Join our Facebook Group. Vets2PM has a group called: Vets2PM SkillBridge Exchange which can be found here. Join the group and learn more about our opportunities – and other SkillBridge opportunities! (Be sure to answer ALL the questions when you join the group or you won’t be approved.)
TIP: Don’t “Hurry up and wait.” While you have time, take advantage of our training / certification resources which will further prepare you for SkillBridge and your retirement/transition. Some of these programs are AF COOL, Army CA, GI Bill funding eligible. Learn more here.
