Shift.org

Every year, 250,000 people leave the military. In many metropolitan areas, up to 80% of veterans leave without a job lined up, and about half of veterans leave their first post-military job within a year. A veteran himself, founder Mike Slagh saw an opportunity to pair veterans with tech jobs in the civilian workforce. In 2018, Shift worked with the military and Department of Defense so service members could take on fellowships at tech companies and gain work experience during their last months of active duty. By late 2019, Shift hopes to place at least 400 service members in fellowships each month and 5,000 veterans in tech jobs per year.
