Success Stories

Proven record of launching careers for veterans

Every job search is an individual quest - one person looking for the best job available. We never forget that. As one of the top staffing providers in the world, Volt ensures that both job seekers and employers are completely satisfied. For returning veterans, that means providing personalized services that spotlight your strengths to prospective employers.

Volt works with Warrior Transition Units, and participates in Transition Assistance Programs (TAP) and the Army Career and Alumni Program (ACAP), to help Veterans and Wounded Warriors start their civilian careers. At branch offices and in outreach programs throughout the country, we connect veterans with top employers in their area.

Our many success stories include:

VMHP Profile: Aircraft Machinist

During five years of service in the U.S. Navy, Aviation Machinist Mate 3rd Class Seana Sprayberry deployed multiple times across Asia and Afghanistan in her role in servicing and maintaining aircraft engines – the only female in her Navy division who performed this type of work.

After transitioning out of the Navy in July 2012, Seana planned to live and work in San Diego, but four months of posting her resume on job boards generated no offers – until she was contacted by the Volt Military Heroes Program. The Volt recruiter recognized Seana's skills, and helped her revise her resume by translating her military skills to civilian equivalents. Volt then set up an interview for Seana with a client who was so impressed with her skills that they offered Seana the job during that interview. Today she is applying her military experience as an aircraft machinist for a leading aerospace company.

VMHP Profile: Security Assistant

1st Class Petty Officer Angela Shelton transitioned from the U.S. Navy in the busy Hampton Roads area of Virginia in February 2009. A Volt recruiter worked with Carol to highlight her military skills and security clearance into marketable qualifications on her civilian resume. Carol submitted Angela's resume to several openings with Volt customers. Two interviews later, Angela accepted a one-year assignment as a Security Assistant with a leading global defense contractor.

The result: A strong working relationship with her Volt recruiter and ability to translate her skills into a civilian career path fostered a successful placement through the Volt Military Heroes Program for Angela Shelton.

VMHP Profile: Information Technology

A Volt recruiter working in the Seattle area regularly visited a Soldier and Family Assistance Center. While at the SFAC, she met a Wounded Warrior who was a highly skilled and motivated IT expert. His years of experience managing complex computer networks in the military made him an ideal candidate for a Seattle high-tech company. When Volt's client, a large employer in the area, saw his resume, they jumped at the chance to interview him. He was hired by the company, both excited about his new career and pleased with how Volt helped ease his transition from military to civilian work.

VMHP Profile: Software Engineer

An advanced electronics specialist in the Navy left the service in 2006 and completed his computer science degree. He had programmed as a hobby since age 16, and in 2008, he sent a Volt recruiter an email with a brief introduction and the statement, "I have a passion for software development." The recruiter's response was quick - "Send me your resume!" With a mix of college education and significant military experience, Volt was able to secure interviews for this Navy veteran. The skills, commitment, and professionalism ingrained by the Navy impressed an area technology company who quickly hired him as an engineer.
