Collectively, Vets2PM, and Veterans2Work, have formed a joint strategic partnership with project management pioneer, THE PMO SQUAD, to deliver a new Veteran talent pipeline to supply experienced project managers to the U.S. workforce.
Through the partnership, Veterans receive not only best-in-class formal project management training, but also in-depth career assessment:
The new Veteran supportive partnership, launching on April 15, 2018, is seeking mentors experienced in project management. The Veterans Project Management Mentoring Program is already pairing veterans with mentors, highly experienced practitioners, who complement Veterans' formal training and serve as career coaches.
Dr. Eric A. Wright, Ph.D., CEO and Founder of Vets2PM explained, "Vets2PM's organizing principle--that military experience makes us natural project managers--is ground-breaking news for Veterans unsure of how to transfer their skills. We are confident that our Mentoring Program helps Veterans to apply their skills and attain meaningful careers."
Veterans2Work Executive Director and Founder, John Reynolds, stated, "We can provide the end-to-end support that will help a Veteran earn the PMP certification and succeed as a project management professional."
Joe Pusz, CEO of THE PMO SQUAD, added, ''This partnership and the talent pipeline we're constructing is a prime example of how collaboration between non-profits, for-profits, and government, can create opportunities for both Veterans and employers."
