NCUS is pleased to announce that it has established a new company program to support military personnel transitioning to post-service careers, in partnership with the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Care Coalition Warrior Care Internship Program.
On April 3, 2017, NCUS executed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with SOCOM to establish the NCUS Internship Program and to provide professional opportunities for Special Operations Forces (SOF) service members transitioning from service to civilian careers.
The SOCOM Warrior Care Internship Program promotes career initiatives that can provide seamless transition into productive post-service careers for eligible wounded, ill, and injured SOF Service Members. SOCOM works by providing both private and public sector fellowships for transitioning active duty service members, employment assistance, and education resources. The process for recovery, rehabilitation and transition to civilian careers can be lengthy, and the Warrior Care Internship Program provides an important vehicle to support service members to ensure the transition is made as smoothly and successfully as possible.
The NCUS program will establish a number of fellowships to bring service members on board as interns for NCUS military and law enforcement training and intelligence capacity building programs. Potential intern positions may be available in support of intelligence analysis, instructional system development, military and law enforcement instruction, and integration of training technology.
The internships are designed to facilitate successful transition into civilian careers for all participating service members. They will allow service members to gain valuable experience, develop new skills, expand their professional networks, receive mentorship from NCUS business leaders, and enhance their resumes. Upon completion of the internships, service members may decide to seek other employment opportunities or continue their career with NCUS.
“I am delighted to be able to support transition activities of our service members,” said NCUS President Scott Jacobs. “I am also eager to bring on highly skilled professionals that can diversify our staff and contribute directly and immediately to our technical work at NCUS.”
