Veterans2Work, Vets2PM, THE PMO SQUAD and Vets2Cloud form partnership to help returning veterans launch careers in project management.
Vets2PM, Veterans2Work and Vets2Cloud have formed a joint strategic partnership with project management pioneer THE PMO SQUAD, to deliver a first of its kind veteran talent pipeline to meet the needs of US businesses for professional project management expertise.
Veterans2Work founder John Reynolds, said, "Vets2PM, The PMO SQUAD and Vets2Cloud are the very partners that, together, can provide the end-to-end support that will help a tank driver qualify for, land, and succeed as a project management professional."
Through the partnership, veterans receive not only best-in-class formal project management training, but also career assessment, resume preparation, individualized mentorship, professional networking, interviewing skills development, workplace learning and more. All services are provided free of charge to veterans and military spouses.
Dr. Eric Wright, founder and Executive Director of Vets2PM stated, "Vets2PM's organizing principle--that military experience makes us natural project managers--is great news for veterans unsure of how to transfer their skills. The PMO SQUAD gives veterans a supportive environment within which to apply their learning and land great jobs."[JBR2]
Joe Pusz, CEO of THE PMO SQUAD added, ‘’this partnership and the talent pipeline we’re constructing into industry is a prime example of how collaboration between non-profits, for-profits, and government can create opportunities for both veterans and employers.
Veterans are already being paired with mentors, highly experienced practitioners who complement veterans’ formal training and serve as career coaches. The partnership welcomesEmployer Partners that want to invest in the potential and demonstrated desire of our graduates via internships or direct hire.
