Career Preparation & Professional Development
Onward to Opportunity is a grant-funded program has requirements to collect demographic and employment/education data. We are happy you are here today to take advantage of it for your professional development. LinkedIn is used to evaluate your experience and education during application review so we can ensure that your investment of time in this valuable program is well spent. In addition, we share information with you during program participation, as well as continue to provide resources after you complete the program.
If you do not have a LinkedIn profile yet, one can be created by following these guidelines.
Your IVMF Advisor and/or Installation Coordinator will be your primary contact(s) during your time in the program. They assist with general questions, provide essential updates on deadlines and opportunities, process registration and practice exam access, and assist with the coordination of industry certification exam fee payment. They can also connect you with our partners at Hire Heroes USA for career-coaching opportunities.
Successful participation tip: Heed the reminders and supporting resources information from your program advisor!
This program is complementary to existing transition programs – building upon existing curriculum to provide industry-specific training to connect eligible participants with specific employment opportunities.
IVMF’s Enrollment Services team is happy to answer any questions you may have prior to starting the program. They can be reached at IVMFeducation@syr.edu or (315) 443 – 6898. Once you begin the program, the Installation Coordinator or an IVMF Advisor (assigned prior to start of the program) will be your primary point of contact.
