WHY DO YOU HAVE COURSES DEDICATED TO WORK WITH THE MILITARY AND THE VETERANS?
We spent 11 months in discussions, observing and listening to providers and Veterans about the transition programs that exist for retiring personnel and believe that our approach,that has been proven to be successful with retiring corporate professionals, will assist retiring military personnel. Making a successful career transition requires that the participant address specific identity-related challenges. After decades of service in either civilian employment or in the military, participants define who they are based on where they have worked. We believe that this common element will assist in breaking down assumptions and stereotypes, facilitate new types of conversations about talents and skills and encourage all participants to find SweetSpot careers that are meaningful and make an impact. This program also provides the corporate participants with the opportunity to learn more about our armed services personnel and be of service to the Veteran participants who need help establishing civilian networks and an understanding of civilian workplace culture and language.
