Hampton Roads

Onward to Opportunity – formerly known as the Veteran Career Transition Program – at Hampton Roads offers two career tracks: Information Technology and Business Management. Your journey will begin with four days of face-to-face classroom training and facilitation that includes the two-day Onward to Your Career course and the two-day foundations course in a learning pathway of your choosing. The classroom portion is followed by 6-12 weeks of online coursework to earn an industry certification.

While you complete your certification coursework, you will also participate in mixer/networking events with our National Employer Partners to hone your personal marketing techniques and skills. This is a great way to gain inside perspective on careers in the private sector while introducing yourself to companies who are looking to hire O2O graduates. Additionally, our National Partner Hire Heroes USA will also help to build your resume and prepare you for interviews.
