What Our Partners Are Saying
"The Veterans really enjoyed the Career Ready program as it was exactly what they needed to transition from Military to the civilian workforce. The students were much better prepared for the critical interviewing process. While at times intense, the ability to track the Veterans’ progress combined with a high level of online interaction, allowed our agency to provide the necessary support to ensure Veteran success."
