“Although I transitioned out of the military 4 years ago, this Shift Career Accelerator helped me navigate where I want to go next in my career. While I didn’t go through any formal training when I initially transitioned, this accelerator helped show me it’s not too late and there are many of us out there! I now feel better prepared and thankful for the Shift community!”

“I got more out of the Career Accelerator than I expected. I have been through a number of courses for career development and found this to be highly relevant and insightful. The sense of community, the speakers, and the content of the courses were all very high quality and very valuable.”

“Of the many veteran career support services in the marketplace, Shift has to be one of the best. Superb framing of strategic career goals through tactical execution of storytelling, resumes, and marketing yourself. Lots of other organizations I have worked with talk about this, but few offer the same in-depth, insightful advice. Time absolutely well spent and I highly recommend it to others.”

“In the beginning, I didn't know what Shift was, and I was cautious of it. I am thrilled I was able to join. Life-changing!”
