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 Find Your Fit tool, which matches credentials from your resume to open IBM positions.
