Employer Partners

Our employers understand the value of transitioning military members, veterans and military spouses and that they represent the best this country has to offer.

Onward to Opportunity is designed to build awareness of the soft and hard skills necessary to succeed in different industries while also making the crucial first connection with employers in these industries that are eager to hire veterans. Participants work one-on-one with a Transition Specialist from Hire Heroes USA to refine their resume, practice for interviews and receive additional coaching on how to start a successful career. For graduates of O2O who successfully complete the program’s requirements, a Transition Specialist at hire Heroes USA matches and guides the graduate through the interview process with the program’s employer partners. 

This program benefits employer partners by engaging transitioning military and spouse talent earlier in the recruitment pipeline that’s trained to meet their skill needs.
