Who should I share this with?


Military Fellowships are a chance for active duty servicemembers to leave their base and spend their last few months of service working inside of some of the country’s most exciting companies. We typically look for servicemembers who are starting to think about their transition out of the military and into the civilian workforce. We work most closely with servicemembers who are 6-12 months from ETS.

Ideal Candidates

Military Fellowships are a way for anyone to change careers, as long as they’re willing to put in the work. More than half of our Military Fellows are enlisted servicemembers, many of whom have only a few years of experience and didn’t go to college. In fact, we don’t require a college degree, and we pride ourselves on finding opportunities that first and foremost value military experience.

Experienced Candidates

No matter who your nominee is, we’ll help them find the perfect fit. That said, for officers and seasoned NCOs, we have particularly exciting opportunities available. Our network of hiring partners includes some of America’s fastest-growing and exciting companies such as WeWork, Palantir, Cisco Meraki, and Major League Baseball. The more you’ve demonstrated breakout military performance, the better your opportunity.
