Look For Your Next Career With American Corporate Partners (ACP)

ACP’s free Mentoring Program connects post-9/11 veterans, active duty spouses and eligible military spouses (Protégés) with corporate professionals (Mentors) for customized mentorships. ACP assists veterans and eligible spouses on their path towards fulfilling, long-term careers, whether the veteran is job searching or newly employed. Connect with ACP at: https://www.acp-usa.org/mentoring-program/program-overview

Typical mentorship goals include:

  • Résumé review and interview preparation
  • Career exploration and understanding job opportunities
  • Career advancement once a position is obtained
  • Work-life balance
  • Networking
  • Small business development
  • Leadership and professional communication

Program Guidelines

An ACP mentorship is a yearlong commitment. ACP encourages Mentors and Protégés to connect for monthly discussions to advance the Protégés goals.

Each mentorship is supported by an ACP staff member who offers customized resources, training and suggestions and to help the pair build a successful mentorship.

Pairing Process

ACP’s staff personally pairs every applicant, hand-picking a Mentor for each Protégé based on career compatibility, experience level, location and personal interests. Every Mentor and Protégé has a phone call with an ACP staff member to communicate preferences, which are then taken into account during the pairing process.

Most mentoring pairs are long-distance and communicate primarily through phone, videoconference and email exchanges.

Listen to the GovExec Podcast:  Fostering a Culture of Connection in the Workplace.

Human beings are social animals and human connection is key to our emotional and spiritual health. Over the past eight months, however, these connections are harder to make as the pandemic has forced organizations out of offices and into remote work. Even before the pandemic, social disconnection was on the rise. Leaders and organizations can foster a culture of connection for a better work environment and better results, even in the pandemic.
