Change a veteran’s future. (And get rewarded.)

The Shift Nominations program was designed to help people recommend their military friends and loved ones for our best-in-class career change programs.


You nominate an active duty servicemember who is preparing to leave the military and might be interested in completing a SkillBridge internship.


We work with your nominee to figure out where their skills and talent would make the best future career fit.


If your nominee gets placed at one of our internship partners, we’ll pay you $500 for making the recommendation.


Military Fellowships maximize civilian career potential

Shift’s on-the-job training programs turn military experience into new careers at world-class organizations throughout the country.

Veteran-led and founded, Shift helps veterans translate their hard-earned military experience and upgrade their skills for careers in everything from Project Management to Business Development and Data Analysis.

Brett Chereskin was a well-respected Aviation Officer, and though he was confident in his abilities, he wasn’t quite sure how they would apply to the civilian workforce. Since landing a job at San Francisco payment startup Affirm through Shift’s Military Fellows Program, Brett was promoted twice in his first year, and has become a crucial member of Affirm’s team.
