Deloitte’s CORE Leadership Program
Helping armed forces members transition to the corporate world
As the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wind down, hundreds of thousands of armed forces members are making the move into civilian employment, and that transition isn’t always easy. That’s why Deloitte pledged to support the White House’s Joining Forces initiative and created the CORE Leadership Program – an interactive, personal course that goes beyond the standard transition assistance programs and draws on the experiences of Deloitte’s own staff of veterans.
“We are helping the veterans identify their own personal strengths so they are able to tell their story better. It goes far beyond their resume. It’s really what’s inside of them, and that’s what employers really want to see,” said Terry Bickham, U.S. Coast Guard veteran and Talent director, Deloitte Services LP.
After two-and-a-half days of intensive learning, the staff and participants could feel the difference. “I really learned, looking at myself and speaking with others, what I have done, what is the value in what I have done and how to tell people what that value is,” said participant Eric Holden, U.S. Marine Corps.
