Career Preparation and Professional Development

Onward to Opportunity is a grant funded program. We are happy you are here today to take advantage of it for your professional development. LinkedIn profile allows us to evaluate your experience and education during application review so we can add value to your investment of time in this program. We share information with you during program participation, as well as continue to provide resources after you complete the program.

LinkedIn is the primary tool used for networking, professional growth, and lifelong employment.

If you do not have a LinkedIn profile yet, one can be created by following these guidelines.

Your IVMF Advisor and/or Installation Coordinator will be your primary contact(s) during your time in the program. They assist with general questions, provide essential updates on deadlines and opportunities, process registration and practice exam access, and assist with the coordination of industry certification exam fee payment. They can also connect you with our partners at Hire Heroes USA for career-coaching opportunities.

Successful participation tip: Heed the reminders and supporting resources information from your program advisor!

This program is complementary to existing transition programs – building upon existing curriculum to provide industry-specific training to connect eligible participants with specific employment opportunities and professional development.

O2O is a Skill Bridge program.

Once you begin the program, the Installation Coordinator or an IVMF Advisor (assigned prior to start of the program) will be your primary point of contact.
