The Overwatch Partnership

The Problem
  • 64% of veterans experience a difficult transition to civilian life/work
  • 69% of veterans consider finding employment after the military to be their greatest challenge
  • Ohio has the 6th highest number of veterans of any state, with thousands of veterans leaving active duty each year

*Prudential Veterans' Employment Challenges Survey

Our Solution
  • Mentoring and networking are 2 of the most effective components of finding or cultivating a career
  • We facilitate the powerful combination of an experienced Mentor and Talent Specialist to provide individualized support to each transitioning veteran in our program
  • We’ve built a network of hundreds of veterans, mentors, recruiters, and corporate HR partners to provide support and job placement assistance
