WithYouWithMe (WYWM), a veteran education and employment tech company, launched just over two years ago with the explicit purpose of making the transition simple for veterans. Founded by veterans, for veterans and with more than 76% of the company’s 75 staff being ex-military, the team really understands issues veterans face on transition.
WYWM has approached veteran employment differently, building a successful tech platform where veterans can access services related to finding their best-fit new career, including a career matching tool, Civilian Orientation for Military Personnel After Service (COMPAS) training course, CV and LinkedIn profile assistance, interview training and access to more than 500 volunteer industry mentors.
The WYWM Academy has more than 15 courses focusing on indemand careers, including Cyber Security, IT, Sales and Robotics and has seen more than 1,000 veterans train for a new career. Courses range from 4 – 12 weeks and have developed a strong reputation in the market, resulting in positive employment outcomes.
