what we do

Helping warriors succeed.

An effective transition experience for injured service members requires a common thread commitment on behalf of the service member and the business community. It is this common commitment – one of engagement, education and (job) placement, or EEP – that is key to the success of Warriors Ethos. Both parties agree to acquire an understanding of the needs and expectations of the other. The civilian business community offers service members the opportunity to try different real-world experiences in order to gain a better understanding of how some of their military skills will translate “corporate America”.

 

Service members have the opportunity to learn civilian cultural competency (up close and personal), learn out how to “sell” themselves in an interview situation, and develop the beginning of a professional civilian network. The ultimate goal of Warriors Ethos is to ensure that every service member participating in the program achieves a successful job placement – one that leads to the start of the next phase of a very successful civilian career.

As I began my transition out of the Army, it quickly became one of the scariest challenges I have ever faced. I didn’t know what my future entailed, but I knew I had to provide for my family. Warriors Ethos introduced me to a Sponsor Company called Intelligent Waves, I met several volunteers through the SOCOM Care Coalition where I was able to find a mentorship opportunity there that I truly enjoyed. Warriors Ethos facilitated a great opportunity to attend a 6 week NetApp NCIE course continuing my education helping me obtain a job in my desired career field. After 9 months of interning Intelligent Waves hired me, who said working for free wouldn’t pay off? I received the same coaching, counseling and mentorship through Warriors Ethos, it felt like I never left the service. I would wholeheartedly recommend Warriors Ethos to any Wounded Warrior. Thanks Warrior Ethos!

As a 23 year Army veteran with a Special Operations background, I had a very specific skill set while in the military. However, a dismounted IED blast in August 2010 changed everything by severely limiting my physical ability on which my skills depended. In my particular case, my concern wasn’t finding a job after the military, it was finding a career that I would want to do for the rest of my life. Warriors Ethos assisted me by being the vehicle through which I could explore the career options open to me, and choose a career path that I wanted, and not one I had to settle for. In my case, Warrior Ethos brought me into a corporate environment, and provided extensive and unfettered access to all the corporate executives. Through detailed exposure to all levels of the company, I was able to better understand the financial, operations, human relations, and management roles of the company. The CEO freely shared his experience and his lessons learned as an entrepreneur and business owner. As a result of this exposure, I was able to make an educated and informed decision regarding my career goals. Through the help and assistance of Warriors Ethos, I look forward to owning my own company, and building upon the skills I learned in the Army and the experience I gained in the Warriors Ethos Corporate Mentorship Program.

Trying to figure out what was next for me was one of the toughest parts of my rehabilitation. Working with doctors and physical therapists to get me up on prosthetic legs was easy, but knowing what I was going to do for a job was the tough part. One moment I'm a special forces officer the next not only do I not have any legs but I have no idea what I am going to do for an occupation to provide for my family. Warriors Ethos provided me the opportunity to intern at a local law firm because I thought I was interested in attending law school. When I realized that getting a law degree was not for me, Warriors Ethos values allowed me to look elsewhere in the business world. Currently Warriors Ethos has provided me another opportunity to work with a Military Contractor in order for me to gain an understanding and allow me to choose a job that I actually want to do once again.
