Pete Blum, Associate Instructor

Pete Blum is a U.S. Marine veteran with a voice and a passion for helping other veterans to be successful. After serving eleven honorable years in the military providing leadership, logistics, management, and IT support, he transitioned from being a United States Marine to a technology professional and leader.

He is an experienced podcast host and is an associate instructor with Project Transition USA and FourBlock.

As a veteran, Pete understands making that transition can be difficult. He has always dedicated time to training and assisting transitioning military personnel on their journey to finding civilian jobs as well as veterans who have already transitioned who may need resources, mentoring, or an introduction in the business world.

Pete believes that helping a fellow veteran make the right connection can make all the difference in the world.
