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.

Many states have recognized that the highly-mobile military lifestyle can create barriers to consistent and meaningful employment; many states now have laws in place that require or encourage licensing boards to grant military spouses expedited applications, temporary licenses, or license recognition.

 

visit http://www.veterans.gov/milspouses to learn about specific laws and resources your new state offers to military spouses who work in licensed occupations.
