Onward to Opportunity – formerly known as the Veteran Career Transition Program – empowers highly qualified transitioning service members and their families with the specific skills and proficiencies required to excel in growing industries. The O2O Program at Fort Drum offers two career tracks: Information Technology and Business Management. Your journey will begin with two and a half days of face-to-face classroom training and facilitation that includes the two-day “Onward to Your Career!” course and the half-day foundation’s course in a learning pathway of your choosing. Once completed, candidates will begin online coursework. Service members, with Battalion Commander Authority, will complete online training the following 6-10 weeks in a classroom setting during the service member’s duty day.
While you complete your coursework, you will also participate in mixer/networking events with our National Employer Partners to hone your personal marketing techniques and skills. O2O candidates work one-on-one with a HHUSA Veteran Transition Specialist (VTS) to complete their resume, prepare for and secure job interviews.

- Enhanced resume
