The Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) Fellows Programs are best-in-class workforce development programs that place highly skilled and educated transitioning service members, military spouses, and military caregivers with employers committed to hiring them.

HOH internship programs range from six to twelve weeks and connect service members, military spouses and military caregivers with companies that provide experiential opportunities with the goal of hiring.

The Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program is an innovative 12-week program that provides transitioning service members with management training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development offered throughout the program prepares fellows for a smooth transition into meaningful civilian careers.

The Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Fellowship Program (MSFP) is a cutting-edge initiative that provides military spouses with professional training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development and direct connection to local employers offered through the 6-week program enable military spouses to quickly build their networks and gain localized job experience.

Fellowship candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on the specific skills of the candidate and the preferences of both parties. Once matched with a host company, candidates undergo exclusive on-the-job training at their host company, gaining firsthand experience in the private sector. This real-world experience is augmented by weekly educational sessions for the cohort, held in a classroom setting.

Through HOH events and programs, more than half a million veterans and military spouses have found employment. Currently, more than 4,000 service members have completed fellowships with more than 200 host companies. The current post fellowship job offer rate is 83% and veterans are earning an average starting salary of $104,000.
