Service to Industry
For Service members, career and transition planning is equally important, as is occupational training for mission success. The DoD SkillBridge programs provides retiring and transitioning Service members the opportunity to participate in industry training programs while transitioning out of their Military careers. The DoD covers Military pay and benefits during a Service member’s time in a SkillBridge program. This provides an invaluable experience for the Service member and the Industry Partner. Service members can also leverage Tuition Assistance and the GI Bill program to enhance marketability and post-separation career prospects. Service members may be eligible to participate in SkillBridge with 180 days of service or fewer remaining prior to the date of separation and at least 180 continuous days of active service.
Polaris is a program partner with SkillBridge. Feel free to contact Polaris with any questions. SkillBridge is an excellent opportunity to plan a life after the military.

“It was an honor to start the intern program with Polaris Consulting Group for the SkillBridge Program. The on-the-job-training in Civilian HR was different compared to military HR. The skills that were acquired through this training prepared me with essentials to be successful in the civilian workforce. The experience, guidance and mentorship provided was the experience that I needed. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and company to work for.”
