The VTAP difference
Veteran-peer talent scouts will recruit, vet and prequalify a veteran and then hand-match that veteran to a specific job identified by industry partners. Prior to submitting the qualified veteran to the prospective employer, VTAP will provide personalized, hands-on assistance to help that the veteran successfully transition from the military to the civilian workforce.
What sets VTAP apart
A personalized, one-on-one process
VTAP hand-matches a veteran’s skills and experience with specific jobs identified by industry partners.
We do not follow typical veteran employment processes which focus on resume writing, online job search platforms and participation in job fairs.
We provide the veteran a personal, human-to-human connection throughout their job search.
Most other veteran employment programs are impersonal only providing access to online job boards/postings and referral services.
Targeted skills & industry partnerships
VTAP specifically targets former military talent with skills and experience that directly translate into high demand, well-paying, mid-level jobs.
Industry partners identify careers in the $55,000 to $100,000+ range that include…
- Logistics & Supply Chain
- Aerospace & Manufacturing
- Facility Maintenance & Engineering
Working directly with potential employers and the Veteran-Peer Placement Specialists.
We will identify, vet and prequalify the veteran whose skills and abilities match a specific job identified by industry partners. We then provide personalized “one-stop” employment transition assistance and training particularly focused on understanding the differences between and adapting to the civilian workplace as compared to military culture, expectations and values.
