Cloud Computing Career Launch Program
for Employer Partners & Sponsors
The Vets2Cloud Career Launch program prepares returning U.S. military veterans for careers as Salesforce-qualified professionals. Demand for related skills is expected to outpace supply, as 100,000 businesses worldwide vie for trained professionals to design, build, configure and manage their Salesforce-based applications.
Veterans2Work has demonstrated that "hiring for aptitude and training for skills" is a highly effective approach to re-skilling transitioning service members for jobs in high-demand technology sectors. We are committed to training, qualifying and placing into employment 1,000 more returning veterans as cloud computing professionals. We seek employer partners and corporate sponsors to provide workplace learning, employment opportunities and financial support, through any of the following programs:
Hire a Cloud-Qualified Veteran
Employer Partners provide veterans with workplace learning experience immediately following completion of the formal training phase. Employer Partners provide a modest stipend to the veteran candidate during the 90-120-day trial period at the end of which they have the option to hire the veteran as a full time employee. Among the benefits of partnering:
Sponsor a Cohort
Sponsors provide financial support for an individual training cohort (12-18 veterans) or an entire program. Our sponsors include both charitable foundations as well as (for-profit) corporations. The business benefits of a corporate sponsorship include:

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you measure success?
Veterans2Work believes that the only true measure of the success of a training program is job placement and career longevity. As such, classroom training is but one means toward the goal of firmly establishing the veteran into a profession.

What are your results so Far?

- Third, through our extensive employer relationships, we provide the critical workplace learning that bridges mere training to career success.
- Fourth, our support for veterans is career-long. Program alumni are increasingly involved in not only helping graduates establish their new careers but in helping one another sustain them.
How is the program funded?
