Military hiring, reinvented.

One partnership gives you access to multiple pipelines of the military's best talent.

Two approaches to hire qualified military talent.

quotes

I was a Munitions Specialist. I built bombs. How am I supposed to translate that into a new career? When I started to think about leaving the military, my biggest fear was that my military experience wouldn’t necessarily make sense to people who haven’t been through that experience. Shift wanted to hear my story, and they really understood how my service translated into things that matter."
