We believe the VMC provides a common point of reference and shared understanding between veteran job seekers and employers. Through our expertise, we crafted the Veterans Employment Program.

Our strategy is straight forward. We assist and support Veterans with:

  • Career Coaching: We support veterans in discovering what they inspire to be as they enter the civilian workforce. Did you hate what you did in the military? That’s ok! Our Employment Specialists review your past work experience and determine with realistic and attainable future goals. We encourage you to take ownership of your career path and will work with you to get the right role.
  • Resume Building: We can help create, edit, and provide feedback for your resume. Translating your military work experience to a clear and concise resume that every hiring manager will understand.
  • Employment Referrals: We have established relationships with regional small and midsize companies and skilled trade unions in the greater Philadelphia area by emphasizing the benefits of hiring military veterans. We also have friends at the regional Fortune 500 companies who are recruiting veterans as well. We are the go-to source for employers who are actively recruiting veterans.

We strive to be the definitive bridge in the Delaware Valley between veterans transitioning into civilian employment and prospective hiring managers, ensuring that military acquired skills are effectively converted into relevant roles within the organization.

As a non-profit organization, we have the advantage of working directly with veteran job seekers and assisting employers in locating and tapping into a qualified candidate pool. That means free for you and free for the employer!

Our motivation to achieve our goals is fueled only by the desire to support veterans transition to successful and meaningful careers. Since 1980 we have thrived as the main Veterans Service Organization in Philadelphia.  Our passion, experience, and grit will you give you the confidence to trust our commitment to serving those who served.
