Hiring A Veteran

The Transition to Communities program is for exceptional men and women who are dedicated, skilled and devoted individuals.

We ensure that we match employees and their skills with employers and employment requirements. We all know that finding the right employee takes time, effort and can be a fairly expensive process.

At Transitions to Communities, we offer a continuous pool of talented employees to meet your needs on an ongoing basis. Tell us who you’re looking for, and we will match your requirements with the right people, including management and employee personnel.

We assure satisfaction and know once you come to us and hire a graduate, the outstanding performance you receive from veterans will guarantee that you keep coming back to us for more of your staffing needs.

Become a Partner

The Transitions to Communities project is looking for community partners who share our goals of assisting veterans to transition into employment and we are seeking partners who will assist our program grow and succeed.

Partnership opportunities are tailored to include a wide spectrum of approaches. These can consist of corporate partnerships that offer workplace tours and the hiring of our graduates, to innovative ideas that support the program, to new concepts that would increase services, supports and opportunities.

Provide Workplace Tours

Our program includes taking tours of local businesses in order to get an inside understanding of what it’s like to work for your business. This allows veterans to see for themselves your work environment and to be able to envision a career with your organization. It also allows your managers to get to meet potential employees in a comfortable setting.
