Transitioning Military

WBB works with local veteran non-profits to target individuals who have recently come out of the military and are having a difficult time adjusting to the civilian world. We actively recruit these personnel due to the large ex-military presence we have at WBB and the understanding that it can be difficult to transition from active duty military to a productive member of the workforce. We provide an environment that is understanding of the candidates’ needs and assist them in developing their skills and becoming acclimated to a professional environment.

Establishing the Right Fit

We focus on the transition of the military lifestyle to the workforce objectives, i.e. meeting job obligations, interaction with people in the workforce, developing new skill sets, re-establishing a work routine, etc. We use local service organizations as a means of identifying and placing candidates .

Meaningful Work

Ensuring our recruits are assigned meaningful work is essential to an effective transition. This allows them to see their individual net worth to actual project efforts and re-enforces individual skills necessary to function effectively in the workforce.

Inclusion

We strive to make our new personnel feel part of the team. Doing so helps our transitioning veterans gain confidence that they are a valued asset in today’s workforce.

Providing Effective Evaluation

Upon on-boarding to the WBB team, a designated mentor is assigned to the intern in order to help them adjust to their new environment, answer questions, and direct them to valuable company resources in order to help them perform at their optimal capability.

Mentors work with interns to establish a structured, regularly scheduled evaluation of their performance to ensure that expectations from both parties are being met and the intern is adequately equipped with all knowledge and resources to successfully achieve their professional goals and ultimately improve their workforce abilities.

Appealing Work Environment

We work with interns to provide a work environment and experience that aligns as closely as possible with the candidate's individual capabilities and interests.

Providing the Best Compensation

WBB provides competitive compensation for our hard-working personnel. Upon completion of contract term, we work on placing transitioning personnel in permanent positions either internally at WBB or externally with the help of local veteran non-profits.

Scott Nelson

Transitioned from active duty to current WBB employee

Scott Nelson was first introduced to WBB through Troops First Foundation as a potential candidate transitioning from active duty with the Military. After having served in the Marines and finishing his undergrad at Oklahoma University, he came to WBB with the hopes to further his career in the world of government consulting. Scott interviewed for an intern position with Mike Perez, Rick Schalk, Dan McCarron and Gary “Ice” Eisenmann.  As an intern, he worked on a variety of activities and projects under the direction and mentorship of “Ice”. Scott’s transition from an injured serviceman to intern provided the opportunity to adapting to a work environment.  Ice led Scott through a series of tough projects and helped him to transition out of his comfort zone and into a business environment. Scott goes on to say, “Overall the internship was a great experience and could not have been better; everyone I worked with was very supportive.”   Following the internship, Scott immediately interviewed for a vacancy at WBB and received an offer as a tactical training analyst at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.  The military community at WBB is why this program is leading in the transition of wounded warriors into the real world.
