Camp Pendleton

“Onward to Opportunity is the program that the Transition Readiness Seminar should be. The people involved in the program not only know what they’re doing and how to help, but they also care and have been there themselves. I would recommend it to any service member transitioning that wants to take control of their career and transition the right way.”

Camp Pendleton

The Onward to Opportunity program at Camp Pendleton offers two career tracks: Information Technology and Business Management. Your journey will begin with three days of face-to-face classroom training and facilitation that includes the Onward to Your Career course and a foundations course in a learning pathway of your choosing. The classroom portion is followed by 12 weeks of online coursework to earn an industry certification.

While you complete your certification coursework, you will also participate in mixer/networking events with our National Employer Partners to hone your personal marketing techniques and skills. This is a great way to gain inside perspective on careers in the private sector while introducing yourself to companies who are looking to hire O2O graduates. Additionally, our National Partner Hire Heroes USA will also help to build your resume and prepare you for interviews.
