FourBlock is hands-down the best transition program for veterans out there. I have been in the Marine Corps for over 18 years and easily rank this above the other programs offered. The networking opportunities, executive mentoring, and one on one instruction is invaluable!!! I cannot thank the FourBlock team enough for their time and efforts to set all of the students up for success. Highly recommend this program for anyone considering transition from military service, regardless of how long you have served!!!!

The Fourblock foundation was immensely helpful to mapping out my transition plan. The 10 week course provided valuable insight and provided me the tools to make a successful transition after active duty. I can not give enough accolades to this organization for the resources and tools that they provide for veterans in the transition process.

Fourblock is a great asset to veterans as it does help with the transition process. Not only does it assist veterans in future career goals, resume writing, and interviewing techniques but it also provides an invaluable resource to learn and develop networking among veterans and those that support us. I really appreciate everything I have learned and the ability to participate in such an outstanding program.

I've been volunteering with FourBlock for the past several months and have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing individuals and hear their stories. To be able to help, even in such a tiny way compared to what each of them has done, is truly rewarding and I look forward to continuing my relationship with FourBlock in the years to come!

The corporate training programs that the staff at Fourblock provide are a great resource for transitioning service members and Veterans in the Greater NorthWestern Region of the United States. I am far better connected and more prepared to enter the civilian workforce because of the tools that I gained by attending Fourblock Programs. Thank You to Monica McNeal and her Team for their efforts to provide this training and guidance during our transition from the military. I believe, this is truly an expectation management establishing process and a genuine and sincere effort to better prepare myself and my Family for a positive entrance into the civilian workforce.

I first came across FourBlock over 2 years ago while working at a non-profit. I was incredibly impressed by the scope of information and the dedication of the people there. As a veteran in transition myself, I could see the benefit and wished something like this had been available when I left the military. I began immediately recommending the program to my own clients, other veterans in transition. I then began hearing first hand about the impact and watched them one by one get connected to employers and new opportunities. I have seen how effective FourBlock is and the positive changes it's made in veterans and military families' lives. I can NOT recommend this program highly enough. I eventually utilized the program myself and I am a proud alumni! Thank you FourBlock.

FourBlock is a really good resource for veterans looking for a job or starting a career. They can give you tools to help a veteran get a job. I have taken the class twice, and they are really good people that care about helping veterans.

As a transitioning veteran entering the civilian workforce, FourBlock is hands-down the most valuable service that I have received. Going through the cohort not only gave me additional feedback about resume writing, LinkedIn profiles, and networking but also teaches one how to narrow their job search. I certainly got a better feel for what I wanted to do as a new career. The real bonus is you get the inside information from Recruiters and HR professionals from major companies in the area you attend. Best of all, it's the comes FREE for the participant. I would highly recommend FourBlock to anyone veteran looking to get a job in the corporate sector or even just to expand their network.

I wish Four Block had been my transition program when I left active duty. Four Block was immensely helpful in prompting me to think about and re-evaluate my goals, and it provided real, practical, hands-on experience making them happen. It helped me think bigger about what I'm capable of and what I want to do. It's definitely helped me become more connected and engaged in my professional network.

As a Google employee and veteran staffing ambassador, it's been a pleasure partnering with FourBlock! Damien and I had the chance to connect at a tech industry Veteran Event at LinkedIn in NYC. We reconnected a few months later to host FourBlock at Google's campus and discuss our hiring process, how to be prepared for a job on day 1 and the importance of a good culture at work. The event was engaging and students/alumni of FourBlock were a pleasure to have on campus. I look forward to partnering with FourBlock in the future.
