SkillBridge For Corporate America

Are you interested in hosting a DoD Approved SkillBridge Resident/Intern?

Overview

As a DoD approved SkillBridge provider, Vets2PM facilitates Host Employer Partnershps so your organization can host a SkillBridge Intern for up to 180 days prior to their transition from active duty (average OJT time is 4+ months).

Vets2PM has taken an existing program and improved it by:

  • Developing DoD SkillBridge ‘Tracks,’ which include Project Management, IT/Cyber, and General Management.
  • We can also facilitate Internships that are outside those Tracks if you have a unique need / interest.
  • We have included industry-recognized certifications that go with each Track, including PMP and PSM certification training for Project Management; Security+ for IT/Cyber; and Certified Manager (CM) for the General Management track.
  • We ensure that each Intern is pre-qualified for the Department of Labor Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), so your organization can take advantage of this valuable program which provides a tax credit for hiring our Nation’s heroes.
  • Ask about our ‘Administration Only‘ option if your needs don’t fall within our three tracks.

Pipeline Information

Project Management Pipeline

The idea is to transform these qualified Interns into “Multi-Purpose Project Managers” (MPPM) who have both predictive and agile certifications and experience. They will earn multiple certifications (PMP, PSM) to validate their experience while you provide on-the-job-training (OJT) to indoctrinate them into the civilian Project Management experience.

IT/Cyber Professional Pipeline

The concept is to train the Intern to industry hot certifications (that also make them DoD 8570/8140 compliant) and provide them the experience they need for the  positions you are hiring for. They will no longer hear: “Sorry, you have the talent we want just not the certifications or experience we require” routine!

General Management/Entrepreneur Pipeline

The mission is to provide the Intern with general management fundamentals by learning to speak the language of management, fluently! The Intern will earn the internationally recognized Institute of Certified Professional Managers (ICPM) Certified Manager (CM) certification and will be able to prove and apply their general business expertise during their internship, on job interviews, while on-the-job, or while running their own business.

    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.
