Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) and Starbucks are working with national and local partners to provide personal and professional development opportunities for student veterans. Through employment opportunities, training programs, service projects, and networking events, student veterans will create a network of individuals and resources that will empower them beyond the classroom and into a career.
As a participating student, you will be hired for part-time work by a local or national business that is proven to be veteran-ready. You will engage, learn, and prepare throughout this semester-long program in the following ways:
- Work for a business committed to hiring and retaining veterans
- Enter into an industry that interests you and/or your major (or a new industry!)
- Get involved with your community and campus
- Participate in a three-month, in-person and online curriculum
- Build business acumen by working with local business leaders and entrepreneurs
- Learn networking skills, interviewing skills, and how to create your elevator pitch
- Prepare yourself for an exciting and rewarding career
In addition to connecting with local employers, you will have the opportunity to enhance your studies and part-time employment with networking events and community service projects through a professional curriculum. The three-month curriculum is engineered for both online and in-person delivery so you can maintain work-life balance.
*Employment with local employers will extend beyond the conclusion of the curriculum based on the will of the employee and employer.
Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) and Starbucks recognize the need to connect student veterans with part-time employment. Participating students will follow and complete a three-month career development program in addition to employment. The curriculum will be delivered online and in-person to promote work-life balance.
Participating employers will be asked to commit to the following:
- Identify part-time employment opportunities within your business
- Attend the selection/interview process
- Help develop student veterans personally and professionally through networking and mentorship
- As a part of the curriculum, student veterans will be asked to engage with their employers in ways including, but not limited to, informational interviews, establishing or maintaining veteran affinity groups, and shadowing leadership
- Establish a clear, smooth runway for students to transition from part-time work to a career upon graduation
*Employment will extend beyond the conclusion of the curriculum based on the will of the employee and employer.
