The USSOCOM Warrior Care Program (Care Coalition) career transition initiatives strive to provide seamless transition into productive post-service careers for eligible wounded, ill, & injured SOF Service Members that are enrolled in the USSOSCOM Warrior Care Program (Care Coalition).   The USSOCOM career transition team provides customized services and support to SOF Service Members that are preparing to transition into the private sector.  It is a unique opportunity authorized by the SECDEF, but does not replicate or duplicate service specific transition programs. 

Services provided include:

  • Private and Public Sector Fellowships

As of January 1, 2019 the career transition team has completed over 390 fellowship nationwide in a variety of industries including small privately owned companies and Fortune 500s. Fellowship opportunities allow transitioning Service Members an opportunity to develop their skills and business knowledge, gain experience working for a private company, and learn about an industry or job they are interested in for 3-9 months. Giving Service Members the opportunity to establish themselves as leaders in innovative programs and contribute to the sponsoring companies missions while remaining on Active Duty.

Wounded, ill, & inured SOF Service Members & Veterans
Eligible Service Members work with their USSOCOM Warrior Care Program (Care Coalition) career transition coordinator to develop and implement a fellowship opportunity. The transition team has pre-established Memorandums of Agreement (MOAs) with corporations and organizations throughout the United States and can also work with Service Members to create a new MOA for company they are interested in. For Service Members that are interested in a Federal Fellowship their TC will connect them with Operation Warfighter.

Employers
The career transition team works with organizations to establish fellowships that have the potential to lead to employment by developing a MOA between the sponsoring company and USSOCOM.
