IBM is working with veteran service organizations to help military veterans prepare for careers in the expanding field of advanced data analytics.
IBM’s Veterans Employment Initiative provides software training, certification and job placement assistance to veterans pursuing careers as data analysts. IBM experts lead five-day training sessions at dozens of locations each year, featuring
IBM i2® Analyst’s Notebook® software. Part of our Impact Grants portfolio, the initiative works with Corporate America Supports You (CASY) and Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCNN) to host sessions and recruit
qualified participants. The program has certified hundreds of veterans in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada, and helped to place many into jobs. Veterans interested in learning how their skills and experience may fit at IBM can use the Watson Candidate Assistant, which matches credentials from your resume to open IBM positions.
Data analytics is among the fastest growing career fields, with a shortage of 200,000 analysts expected in the United States by 2018.
Intensive, week-long sessions are conducted by IBM’s Cloud and Analytics Software and data analyst training teams.
You can learn about employment and training services, and how to participate, at CASY and MSCNN.
“As a big part of our Train to Hire program, corporate partners like IBM help us focus on elevating our veterans' skills with training in real, high-growth career opportunities like i2. We are very fortunate to draw from IBM's deep understanding of the military and strong support for veterans – including many they employ and others who benefit from our deep-rooted partnership.”
– CASY founder and CEO Daniel Koeppel
