We understand that Veterans and transitioning service members face unique challenges when it comes to finding their place the civilian workforce. We’re here to help.
Finding a fulfilling career can be a challenge for anyone, but there is a disconnect between military experience and civilian employers’ expectations that often compounds the frustration of the job search process for Veterans specifically. For example, you may have all the skills and knowledge required for a certain position, but not the certifications employers are screening for. It can also be difficult to effectively translate your military-based training and expertise into civilian language on a resume. Veteran job-seekers also commonly require scheduling flexibility that can be hard for civilian employers to understand, to accommodate various obligations connected to the VA, potentially frequent medical appointments, or even Reserve trainings.
Lab Four is committed to understanding these challenges, helping our Veteran students and alumni bridge those gaps, and decreasing the stress of military-to-civilian career transition.
" The knowledge, motivation, and challenging nature of the professional staff at Lab Four have pushed me to do more – for myself, my family, and my future as a professional in the IT field. "
