Veterans' STAR Program

CHARTING A NEW COURSE

DIVERSANT's innovative STAR Program partners our premier Clients with qualified U.S. Veterans to build a pipeline of American IT talent. While large numbers of Veterans are coming home from deployment overseas, many American companies are finding that there isn't enough IT talent to meet their needs. STAR bridges the gap between the desire for substantive work among the Veteran population and the need for IT talent by American corporations.

STAR doesn't provide jobs; it builds careers.

FORGING A BRIGHT STAR

STAR allows U.S. Veterans with little or no experience in IT to build a well-paying and long-lasting career path in the corporate technology sector. The Program combines classroom instruction with on-the-job training to build the foundation for future development. STAR follows this training with employment experience, first as an IT consultant and finally as an employee of the sponsoring company.

The path to a career in IT begins with STAR

On Opportunity
"I would recommend STAR to any of my veteran friends; it's a perfect opportunity to get yourself in the door in a corporate environment and the sky's the limit from there."

On Satisfaction
"A lot of places don't give military experience a lot of credence; the STAR Program definitely offered me a way into a field that I enjoy and I believe that that's what you should be doing—what you love."

On The Client Environment
"I'm happy with the way things are going. I'm happy to have a foothold into a Fortune 500 company. A lot of places run through nepotism; I'm very happy to see that [the client] is allowing vets to get into these positions, especially given the number of vets coming out of the service every year."
