Announcing our new Project Transition USA
VETERAN SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM!
Project Transition USA’s pioneering effort on MacDill AFB in Tampa (home of U.S. Special Operations Command and U.S Central Command) has already produced countless success stories.
Our five years of LinkedIN Workshops on MacDill have supported the transition of over 2,000 troops.
Many exciting job offers have been accepted — in a wide range of industries and all sizes of companies (including Fortune 500 legends such as Tesla and Amazon).
However, a critical GAP was being left unfilled. Quite simply, many transitioning service members who are nearing retirement need more personalized, ongoing training than our monthly, one-day LinkedIN workshops on MacDill Air Force Base can provide.
Enter our new Veteran Scholarship Program
Thanks to the generous financial support of our sponsors, we are now offering multiple, free of charge, one-on-one LinkedIN consultations to qualifying transitioning military veterans and spouses who have attended our LinkedIN workshop and need additional assistance.
These personalized phone coaching sessions are conducted by our own highly-trained team of veterans, who after volunteering 50+ hours over a period of months in support of our LinkedIN Workshop attendees, are now being PAID to share what they have learned with others!
In addition to being highly-trained LinkedIN users, each veteran on our team has demonstrated an uncommon degree of COMMITMENT and PASSION for supporting their fellow veterans. Most importantly, they are PATIENT and HUMBLE, having walked many a mile in their clients’ shoes.
Our coaching sessions cover these topics (and more):
* How to create a profile that will help servicemembers build authentic, supportive relationships
* Effective job searching techniques within innovative companies that foster creativity
* How to identify & communicate with veterans inside target industries & companies
* Networking strategies for starting their own business (if appropriate)
* How to connect with influential people who share their interests
Our underlying theme: “Veterans Training Veterans”
This new Veteran Scholarship Program is bringing us closer to our goal of ensuring that ALL transitioning U.S. service members feel thoroughly equipped to make the significant cultural switch from their military careers to the civilian workforce.
As funds continue to become available, we plan to expand our paid U.S. Veteran team so we can offer these one-on-one LinkedIN coaching sessions to ALL transitioning military servicemembers & spouses who attend our workshop on MacDill AFB and wish to remain in Tampa Bay.
A Special Thank You to our Inaugural Sponsor
We are deeply grateful to Ben Sever, VP of Strategic Partnerships at AtRock Consulting Group, for leading the way and helping us launch this important new program at Project Transition USA.
Ben’s generous financial donation made it possible for us to begin offering our new LinkedIN coaching service in addition to the monthly LinkedIn workshops we’ve been teaching for transitioning military members and their dependents on MacDill AFB since 2012.
