Swagelok Co. has partnered with the United States Department of Defense’s SkillBridge program, helping active military members transition to the civilian sector.
Through this national program, Swagelok invites transitioning service members to network, develop new skills, and learn about the company. In addition to practical work experience, Swagelok SkillBridge fellows participate in an orientation process, attend personal and professional development classes, network with other program participants, and meet with Swagelok leadership. Their involvement is aided through the support of a mentor related to their work role, as well as a veteran mentor. Opportunities are available in all areas of the organization, including operations, supply chain, sourcing, commercial, engineering and more.
The program has the support of the highest levels of leadership at the company, including military veteran and Swagelok President and COO James Cavoli.
“As a fellow veteran, I appreciate the invaluable skills that our service members have and the experience that they can leverage in the corporate sector,” said Cavoli.
Swagelok supports active-duty military members and veterans in a variety of ways. The Swagelok Veterans and Military Resource Group, founded and operated by Swagelok associates with the support of company leadership, has made it their mission to make Swagelok an employer of choice for veterans. A network of skill sharing, professional development, and mentorship focuses on helping veterans, active reservists, and National Guard military members succeed in the civilian workforce. The group also promotes team building activities as it participates in community events and supports local and national charities.
Interested active military members who are transitioning to the civilian workforce are invited to find more information at the Swagelok SkillBridge website or reach out directly to SkillBridge@swagelok.com. Swagelok also encourages all veterans to contact SwagelokVets@swagelok.com to network and learn about the company and potential opportunities.
