Veteran Transition Support

Who We Are

Veterans Transition Support (VTS) is an All-Volunteer San Diego and Orange County California based 501(c)(3) Nonprofit created in 2014 to help active duty service members and veterans bridge the gap between military service and civilian life through job training and one-on-one mentoring in career development, education planning and obtaining veteran benefits to launch their next career and prevent veteran suicide, homelessness, unemployment, and family disintegration. The Veterans Transition Support “Military Transition Training Program” provides no cost professional certification courses and transition resource briefs at the Wounded Warrior Battalion on Camp Pendleton, in San Diego and in San Marcos. Partnerships with the Easter Seals Bob Hope Veterans Support Program and the VetCTAP veteran career management program ensures that all program participants who register for one-on-one assistance are provided with individualized employment support and assistance with resume writing, interviewing techniques, and networking at no cost to the veteran.

What We Do

Veterans Transition Support’s (VTS) mission is to bridge the gap between the civilian workforce and our transitioning military service members and veterans before they experience transition road-blocks. VTS ensures our military service members reintegrate back into civilian life and the civilian workforce into careers suitable for their level of military experience and economic sustainability. This is achieved by providing service members with effective tools to translate their military experience into recognizable civilian job skills, civilian certifications to transfer military experience into its civilian counterpart, identifying needed training to fill skill gaps and one on one mentoring in four critical areas required to sustain a successful transition: Career Development, Cultural Adaptation, Obtaining VA Benefits and Education Planning. The VTS goal is to seamlessly transition all military personnel who enter the Veterans Transition Support program prior to leaving military service through individual mentoring, career management, counseling, and weekend and evening programs that close skill gaps and provide networking opportunities with civilian hiring managers.

Why Our Work Matters

VTS has proven with our successful testimonies, that reaching out to Service-members BEFORE they leave the service gives them a higher chance of success and a small chance of failure. Veterans Transition support fills the gaps often causing transition failures. We have proven that helping a Veteran BEFORE they fail by understanding the key areas that effect Veterans as they transition and focusing in Career Development, obtaining Veterans Benefits, Education Planning, and Cultural Adaptation in a one on one setting. We have proven that a Non profit can be fiscally responsible and meet the needs of a community and help those that depend on our help.

VetJobs

VetJobs.org is an anchor member of the VetJobs OCEAN (One Central Employment & Advancement Network) family of websites.

We are the #1 online resource for military-affiliated job seekers looking to attain a rewarding career and maximize their earnings.

Over the past 16 years, we and our sister sites have actively helped more than 63,000 military spouses, active duty military and veterans connect to high-earning careers.

What We Do

VetJobs has honed a very successful, proven method for ensuring our job seekers connect with the career opportunities they deserve.

Our approach has three parts: people, technology and education.​​​​​​​

1. People. Our people — all of whom are highly-educated veterans and military spouses themselves — get to know our jobseekers personally. They work to understand a candidate’s military service, the skills they’ve acquired and how that translates to today’s job market. We then provide personal, high-touch, free job placement support, leveraging relationships with hundreds of leading national employers.

2. Technology. After we get to know our candidates personally, we tap into a world-class technology backbone — graciously donated by IBM — which enables us to access over two million high-paying openings, donated through DirectEmployers Association, plus view applicants and track hiring outcomes the same way top employers do. Further, we track our job seekers’ progress after we place them, helping to ensure they succeed. As they progress along and advance in their career – we’re right there with them to help as needed.

3. Education. For candidates who need extra support when transitioning from the Military to the private sector, we have developed top-notch training, educational tools, career development resources and mentoring. Our training team — which includes professionals who have developed curricula for prestigious American universities — works closely with each job seeker to guarantee they’re positioned to get the job they deserve.

Our Values
We believe a big part of what sets us apart is our core values, which were deepened
through serving our country. Those values include:

Integrity – We don’t accept funding from any branches of the Military or corporate HR departments; our singular allegiance is to the jobseekers we serve.

Respect – We have the deepest respect for those who are serving, have served, and surround those wo have served; that reverance guides every decision we make.

​​​​​​​Commitment – We don’t think it’s enough to just help a veteran or spouse get a job. Nobody goes deeper, or stays involved longer, to help military-affiliated job seekers attain a rewarding career.

Focus – We have never strayed from our founding charter. If it doesn’t help active duty military, veterans or military spouses connect with a high-paying career, we won’t do it.

Efficiency – We are tirelessly devoted to ensuring every penny we spend advances our mission. Deloitte audits show that 96 cents on the dollar goes to that mission.

About the VetJobs OCEAN Family.

Chapter 1: Helping Military Spouses Thrive

The VetJobs OCEAN family had humble beginnings — founded with $323, in military housing, at the outset of the Iraq War. When Deb Kloeppel, a successful entrepreneur and senior executive at American Airlines, left her position to PCS overseas, she realized there was a need to better support the career aspirations of military spouses. She saw women and men who were accomplished, highly trained and highly educated, but suddenly found themselves living someplace very far away — because of their devotion to family and country. So, in 2004, Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN) was born.

Chapter 2: 1 : 1 Job Placement Support for Active Duty Military and Veterans

MSCCN quickly grew to become the premiere job placement and career development facilitator for military spouses and family members. It was so successful that it inspired Deb and her husband, Rear Admiral Dan Kloeppel (U.S. Navy, ret.), to co-found CASY: Corporate America Supports You. Armed with a letter of need from the Army National Guard and startup money from Direct Employers, CASY was chartered in 2010, with the mission of providing free employment readiness, vocational training and one-on-one job placement services for National Guard, Reserves, transitioning service members and veterans of all branches of service. RADM Kloeppel — after a 36-year military career, plus 36 years as a commercial airline pilot — has gained a unique perspective on how to best support service members transitioning to the civilian workplace.

Chapter 3: Supporting Tens of Thousands, Joining Forces with VetJobs

From just under 500 job placements its first year, CASY quickly grew to become a powerhouse in helping military-affiliated job seekers connect to high paying, rewarding careers. By 2019, CASY and MSCCN had surpassed their 57,000th verified hired. It was at this point, with the financial help of Swift Transporation, that the opportunity emerged to acquire VetJobs.com, the best-known, online military job board. One immediate impact was the addition of thousands of new applicants, now receiving our one-on-one help. With the addition of VetJobs, CASY and MSCCN had their most successful year ever in 2019, helping nearly 9,200 active duty service members, veterans, and military spouses connect to career opportunities.

To begin 2020, the VetJobs OCEAN family welcomed MilitarySpouseJobs.org — powered by MSCCN, now sitting alongside VetJobs.org, CASY.US and MSCCN.org​​​​​​​.

MilitarySpouseJobs.org provides the same unparalleled career placement and advancement services to military spouses, caregivers, and military family members that MSCCN has delivered for years, as these onboarding gateways all lead to our same IBM technology, DirectEmployers Jobs, and our one-on-one assistance.

Vets - Beyond the Uniform

The VETS Beyond the Uniform program (see Resources below) has been developed by military veterans with the specific goal of helping veterans make a successful journey from the military into the civilian workforce. They also help employers that hire veterans become “Veteran Friendly”. VETS is an acronym representing Veterans Educational Transformation Solutions. As its name suggests, it’s about preparing veterans as they enter the workforce. It’s also about preparing employers for a veteran workforce, especially understanding how to welcome and integrate them.

 

Veteran Employee Retention Services

VETS – Beyond the Uniform’s mission is to build upon the veteran’s military skills and the skills taught by military transition programs. Their goal is to improve the veteran’s chances for successful long term careers. They provide veterans with one-on-one coaching & mentoring, and access to workshops & training that cover the skills-sets used in the civilian workforce.

VETS – BTU provides veterans transitioning from the military service over 200 free soft-skills training workshops, webinars, and self-paced online training. These programs empower them to successfully integrate and become effective in the business world and civilian workforce. They support each veteran’s transformation with workshops, webinars, group training, self-paced learning, and 1 on 1 mentoring and coaching.

Listen to the conversation I had with the Founders about helping veterans with disabilities thrive (see Resources below).

Employer Support Services

Their mission to support veterans doesn’t end with the veteran. They also support the long term success for employers that hire veterans. VETS – BTU coaches and mentors will work with your team to help you understand them all. They’ll work with you to strengthen your veteran hiring & retention programs as well.

Hiring a veteran brings you a candidate possessing natural leadership, strong work ethic, education & training, and tax credits. There are 6 retention-focused components to the support services:

  • Defined Hiring

  • Mentorship Programs
