TYSONS CORNER, VA May 27, 2015 — ExecutiveBiz reported Tuesday on the latest batch of retired servicemen to graduate from the SAP (NYSE: SAP) National Security Services training course that seeks to match veterans with jobs in information technology.
The group is the third batch to finish the 11-week program, which seeks to build on veterans’ interview and communication skills and the specialties they could contribute to their new workplace, according to the Washington Times report.
“The young men and women that were overdeployed, often the ones who were over there getting shot at if they don’t have a college degree, their resume has a tendency not to make it very far, ” Mark Testoni, CEO of SAP NS2 and an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 list for 2015, told the publication.
“We said, ‘Let’s take those great skills that they get in the military – focus on mission, teamwork, not going to be denied, an attitude that has helped this country prevail – let’s now take that and layer some really sought-after technical skills on top that [to] make them more attractive, ’” he added.
