Military leaders with a broad spectrum of leadership and multi-echelon operational experience need a transition program that could significantly build their civilian network, and add civilian work experience to their resume. Leaders in transition and spouses due to relocation, also need to significantly increase their chances of landing a career that is more in line with their education, experience and current level of pay. One of the most effective ways to assist in meeting these goals is through a Fellowship in an actual business.
While you are on Active Duty in transition or a spouse, you will be placed with one of our Partner Companies in a management position for three months. You will train and network with them four days a week. You will also spend one morning each week in the classroom gaining valuable corporate skills and certifications. This all culminates in a final project and an interview for possible employment.
You have managed, led and commanded in the military, now Make Our Team Your Team, Apply Today!
Some of our great partners include: Starbucks, Amazon, UPS, Alaska Airlines, Comcast, Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, ThyssenKrupp Aerospace, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research/Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Group Health, TrueBlue, Williams-Sonoma, 7-Eleven, and many others.

First round interviews will be conducted individually, normally at Stone Education Center, (schedule will be provided). If selected from the first round interview to move forward, your resume will be distributed to all of the companies. They will have approximately 4 to 6 weeks to select who they would like to interview (we will notify you along the way). Upon the deadline of receiving their selections, we will hold a mass interview event (scheduled in advance), where you will interview at tables with each company that selected you. After your last interview, you will rank each company you interviewed with, and they will rank you. We will make placement decisions based off of this information. You will be notified of your placement within 48 hours following this event.
The first week will run Tuesday through Thursday. This curriculum serves as a foundation into the corporate setting. Throughout the remaining 11 weeks of training, the Fellows will spend Monday through Thursday in on-the-job training with our Corporate Partners; while each Friday will consist of a blend of online and/or classroom corporate training and time back with the military unit or separation processing as needed.
Myriad of certification tracks will be offered at no cost to fellows: PMP certification, HR Track, IT Track, or Lean 6 Sigma Track and many, many more (Learn more here). The cost for these certifications range from $1500-$2500 each, depending on the cost of each proctored certification exam. As a result of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s partnership with Simplilearn, the world’s largest professional certifications company, there will be no cost to Fellows; only an increase in the earning potential these certifications provide their recipients. Full-cost funding is available to all Fellows who complete the coursework for their elected certification within the 13 weeks they are in Corporate Fellowship Program. In addition to the initial immersion week, Microsoft Office courses, weekly fellow huddles, and guest speaker/mentor programs will also be taught during the program.
As a way to kick-start the Fellows’ ongoing classroom learning, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation will host a “Fellowship huddle” with senior-level guest speakers each Friday. This event provides an opportunity to network and absorb invaluable knowledge from key corporate leaders in civilian sectors. The Fellows will receive a variety of assignments and projects to complete, thus enabling the Fellows to be mentored, trained and evaluated on their work. Throughout this process, the C2C Liaison for the CFP monitors Fellows directly via agreement and coordination with liaisons from each participating business. The C2C Liaison also retains responsibility of ensuring program effectiveness, cohort participation and progress, success rates and client/business satisfaction upon completion of the program. The Fellowship ideally ends no later than two weeks from the time the Fellows’ separation from the military. This will allow enough time for any required out-processing procedures, but not too much time to negate the ability to be hired into a position with the business.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your C2C counselor or email email@example.com
