Our goals?  

 

  • To help employers build smart & efficient military talent pipelines that are aligned to workforce needs by leveraging DoD SkillBridge. 

  • To help "normalize" DoD SkillBridge internships for Fortune 500 companies so that they become as commonplace as are university internships.

  • To enable small/mid-size companies to efficiently participate in DoD SkillBridge opportunities.

Want to establish your own DoD-authorized SkillBridge program?  Start by reviewing all employer info on the DoD SkillBridge website and submitting your interest directly.  Then consider attending one of our 50strong SkillBridgeConnect Q&A info sessions.  

 

Need more support?  We offer custom consulting services to support DoD SkillBridge utilization in three main areas:

Business Consulting

Need more dedicated consulting support for internal business alignment, program setup, DoD credentialing and best-practice collaboration with other employers?  50strong wants to help by helping you prevent the "churn".  

 

Service Member Outreach

Already have a DoD-authorized program and need some help with outreach?  Want your roles included in the list above?  Download this template, fill it out and email it to info@50-strong.us. There is no fee to any DoD-authorized provider to be listed here.

Internship Collaboration

For those organizations that may not be ready or don't have the resources to establish their own SkillBridge program yet, we may be help by getting you started as a 50strong Intern employer host.  Note:  50strong and DoD signed a Memorandum of Understanding for SkillBridge authorization in June 2020.

50strong works with our employer partners collaboratively to identify SkillBridge-appropriate roles that provide high probability of long-term full-time employment opportunities post-military. The employer partner hosts the service member in an industry environment that ensures significant exposure to civilian employment work experience & learning opportunities.  SkillBridge participants work ~37 hours/week in the employer’s environment and on timing that is mutually agreeable for the employer and the service member. 

50strong’s goal is to support full-time employment opportunities post-military.  Prior to opening any role with any host employer, 50strong works with our host employers on the following:  

  • To determine if there is a resourced, full-time employment pathway for the SkillBridge opportunity

  • To guarantee that each SkillBridge candidate will have the opportunity to interview for the full-time opportunity prior to the end of the SkillBridge training as along as they meet all requirements

  • To ensure that each host employer can identify an internal mentor that can support their employment transition journey.

  • To ensure that each host employer is willing to champion and support the below career readiness training provided by 50strong during the SkillBridge window in the event that full-time employment at the host employer is not achieved. 

In order to ensure each 50strong SkillBridge candidate is able to navigate their own civilian job search and to help drive toward full-time employment outcomes - either at the host employer or elsewhere if full-time employment at the host employer is not achieved - each 50strong SkillBridge intern is expected to participate in 50strong career readiness training, including: 

  • 90 minutes/week participation in 50strong EmployerConnect virtual training series, For participants, the approach will provide cross-industry civilian employment training & exposure and networking with a variety of military-ready employers that is applicable for any service member, military spouse or student veteran transitioning into civilian work to leverage and apply toward their post-military job search.  

  • 2 hours/month group networking with 50strong staff, 50strong industry mentors, and other 50strong interns.

  • 1 hour/week individual networking with industry mentors - either via Veterati, direct referrals by 50strong or any other mentoring/networking event.

 

Note: All SkillBridge candidates are highly encouraged to pursue all learning & networking options during this SkillBridge participation.  

Or if we don't have capacity, we can refer you to one of our partner 3rd-party SkillBridge internship placement partners if our bandwidth can't accommodate your timing!
