We go deep to analyze military career paths and performance and extract core competencies. We learn about "invisible" skills and traits — things like soft skills and work domain preferences. Then we go through a similar process to systematically describe job descriptions, which allows us to predict high-confidence matches between service members and roles.
We’re doing this today through a partnership with the military that allows soon-to-be-veterans to start working at companies during their final months of active duty service. This trial period lowers risks to companies and veterans alike, leading to better placements that excite everyone involved.
One of the big challenges for today’s veterans is that government and commercial job placement agencies make recommendations mostly based on military job titles. Unfortunately, modern jobs at high-growth companies often aren't listed in the recommendation databases.

We’re building predictive models that are new way to match military backgrounds with job posts and tell the fascinating stories of today’s military veterans.
Every time a veteran is hired on Shift, our ability to predict a perfect match gets better, and we’re one step closer to creating seamless and professional hiring experiences for any company.How we match
