The Pilot Company has been accepted into the Department of Defense’s SkillBridge Program. The program offers transitioning service members opportunities for professional development and successful civilian careers. The program at Pilot Company will provide active-duty military personnel nearing the end of their enlistment an opportunity to hone their skills and gain expertise in a range of fields, including technology, operations and logistics.
The SkillBridge Program allows service members to gain work experience through internships, apprenticeships and other job training opportunities with civilian employers during the last six months of their military service. These roles can turn into full-time positions for the service member upon completion of the program.
"Finding meaningful employment is one of the challenges veterans faces when reintegrating into civilian life," said Erin Tanner, recruiting program manager at Pilot Company and a U.S. Navy veteran. "Pilot Company is honored to work with the Department of Defense, through its SkillBridge Program, to help deliver a solid foundation for a successful career beyond military service. Once service members finish the program, we hope they stay at Pilot Company and bring their years of experience and training into some of our leadership roles."
Pilot Company has a team of recruiters who travel to veteran-based career fairs and attend military transition assistance programs to share more information about opportunities at Pilot Company.
For Veterans Day, the Pilot Company offered military service members and their families a complimentary meal. Additionally, the company ran a round-up campaign benefitting the Call of Duty Endowment, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting veterans in transitioning to successful civilian careers post-military service.
