Edge4Vets offers what we call a system of Prep and Connect. This is what makes Edge4Vets different from other vet job prep programs – we blend "job readiness" training with personal support from business mentors to set you on a pathway to career success.
In the first segment, Prep, we help you achieve what business leaders say you need to most; that is to translate your military strengths into tools for civilian success
PREP and CONNECT in FOUR STEPS:
1. PREPARE in ADVANCE for the WORKSHOP:
Once you register, we'll send you a WELCOME VIDEO showing how the program works. We'll include "tips" on ways to prepare in advance for the Connection Workshop so you can start making yourself "job ready" to gain maximum benefits from the workshop.
2. CONNECTION WORKSHOP:
The Connect Workshop is the core of the program, HR reps and hiring managers from our partner companies will sit with you and serve as mentors to guide you through the process of creating a personal Plan4Success. Mentors will not only help you gain CLARITY on your strengths, but will help you MATCH your skills and interests to jobs that can lead to careers at our partner companies.
3. ONLINE COURSE:
Following the workshop, we'll send you an invitation to our ONLLINE COURSE. You'll be able to work at your own speed to take your notes from the workshop and refine your PLAN4SUCCESS before submitting it to us. Once you submit your PLAN we'll send you an Edge4Vets CERTIFICATE you can use to secure interviews and gain an "edge."
4. ONGOING SUPPORT:
Edge4Vets works with veterans organization in local communities where we offer workshops. We'll connect you to these resources for "wrap around support" – including resume writing, interview prep, counseling and more – so you get the most from your Edge4Vets experience.
The Edge4Vets system of Prep and Connect really works: research shows that up to 8 out of 10 vets who have take Edge4Vets and complete all the steps in the program get jobs!
Select the workshop (and location) that work best for you. We offer a "General" program for those who wish to prepare for jobs in business, finance, pharma, etc, as well as an "Edge4Vets at Airports" program for those who wish to prepare for jobs at our partner AIRPORTS.
