what we do
Transition is a process – one that is different, and a very personal experience, for each and every service member and his or her family.
An effective transition experience for injured service members, however, 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 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.
