My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for FourBlock Foundation Inc, New York, NY, USA
As a military officer preparing to transition to a civilian career after serving 20 years in the U.S. Navy, I have gratefully taken advantage of numerous programs offered by Veteran support organizations. Each sought to impart veterans with transition-related skills and resources to help them gain civilian employment upon retirement/separation from the military.
I recently discovered FourBlock through a colleague and completed their 10-week Career Development Program. FourBlock's course syllabus prepares candidates for success in their post-military careers by teaching them how to communicate their value to the business community based upon the unique skills and aptitudes that they bring. This is accomplished through expert coaching, multi-domain brand development, and the opportunity to participate in evening corporate networking events.
At the start of my transition journey, I knew instinctively that I needed to network and develop professional connections in order to be successful in my job search. However, I had not received any training from the military in this skill area, and did not know where to begin or how. Now, as a proud FourBlock Alum, the outlook on my professional future has brightened considerably. Since completing their program, I've developed a diverse and deep network of professional connections within my chosen industry and beyond. Through these connections I've been accepted into two technology internships, which would not have been possible without FourBlock's program.
I routinely recommend the FourBlock Career Development Program to my colleagues. I can honestly say that it has been the most impactful influence upon my military transition.
