“We want to provide exposure to military-seeking employers EARLY & OFTEN to support post-education employment for our students. And we want to do it at scale. Our partnership with 50strong makes this possible.”

“Immediate impact and direct access. That’s the value we’ve seen in our partnership with 50strong. This collaboration has also led us to explore how we can further support our military community via other workforce & engagement initiatives such as DoDSkillBridge.”

"Helping to connect our students with potential future career opportunities is a key priority... By combining the service 50strong provides with AMU's personalized resume writing support, resources and coaching, we give our students a great way to connect with employers that are focused on veteran recruiting initiatives." (Press release here)
Our EDUCATION PARTNERS are critical to 50strong efforts.
Many of the ~200K service members that separate each year from active duty pursue full-time education, yet many campus recruiters aren't aware of military-specific pathways. Higher ed vet initiative leaders are therefore critical in their students' "extended" transition to civilian employment.
Many service members are pursuing degrees & certificates while they are still on active duty. Awareness & championship of DoD SkillBridge opportunities can be critical.
Military Spouses are often leveraging dependent benefits. Many of our employer partners actively resource MilSpouse employment pathways.
Community colleges & universities can be engagement & upskilling hubs for ALL military families & employers in our communities.
