CityU Partners with Camo2Commerce to Help Service Members Transition Into Careers in Business
City University of Seattle is excited to announce its involvement in Camo2Commerce’s Heroes Corporate Fellowship Academy—an initiative that prepares service members from Joint Base Lewis-McChord to transition from the military to civilian life and the 21st century workforce through business and on-the-job training.
CityU will work with service members who have been accepted into the Heroes Corporate Fellowship Academy to teach them everything from foundational business strategies to project management essentials to leadership skills.
There are over 9,000 military service members transitioning out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord and into the civilian workforce each year. These service members have worked in military jobs that have either a direct or indirect correlation to civilian industry. All 16 of the service members who began the fellowship this week have held leadership positions within the military, and through the fellowship will learn how to translate their experience to a future career in business.
Fellows accepted into Camo2Commerce’s Heroes Corporate Fellowship Academy will complete a 13-week program that includes corporate training provided by CityU, and on-the-job training provided by corporate partners such as ThyssenKrupp Aerospace NA, Amazon, Starbucks, Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center, Compass Group, Thurston Economic Development Council, TrueBlue, Inc., Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce, and Williams-Sonoma.
