PMI’s Military Program "Operation: Qualify for Hire"

Did you know that there are currently 24 Million U.S. Military Veterans and that 350K transition from Active Duty to Veteran status annually?

Were you aware that sixty-plus U.S. military reservations each support active PMI chapters?

Did you know that we are going through the largest draw-down in military personnel since the end of World War II?

With Fort Bragg, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune all “just down the road”, many of these transitioning Veterans have set their sights on  the North Carolina Triangle and are looking to transition into post-military Project Management careers. 

Consequently, the NCPMI Chapter will soon Kick-Off PMI’s Military Program "Operation: Qualify for Hire" for our chapter!
 
Our goal is to become very good at the business of aiding Veterans, active military and/or their families to join PMI and participate in our chapter activities, assist them in becoming qualified for project management certifications, to achieve PMI credentials and to help them secure employment in the Project Management profession; the same services that the chapter provides for its current members, today.  The difference will be in assisting Veterans in making the transition back into the Civilian world, and specifically, into the project management community.

 

You may have seen and participated in the recent NCPMI Chapter survey to determine the extent of our Veteran population and it received a surprisingly strong response.  With 486 responses, we identified 174 Veterans with 99 of them credentialed, ready and willing to take on Mentoring activities for Veterans who are interested in joining our chapter.

So, what does this mean for you?  The NCPMI Chapter’s entry into the global PMI Military Initiative creates volunteer opportunities to assist Veterans in finding a professional home in our local project management community.  What better way to volunteer for our chapter than to help those who have already served us all?

There’s more to come as we roll-out the chapter initiative, however, if you have questions, please contact:   This email address is being protected from spambots.
