FDM Veteran Programs
The FDM Veteran Program focuses on transitioning Veterans into professional IT Consultants. FDM is able to provide those with the aptitude and desire to work with the essential skills needed to build successful careers in IT. In addition, accepted applicants will also be employed by FDM for a minimum of two years as IT Consultants, working to deliver FDM’s innovative IT solutions.
How It Works
FDM’s Academy Program is unique because it places IT Consultants at the heart of the FDM organization in a client-facing role, delivering FDM’s unique IT solutions to major clients in the Banking and Financial Services sector.
FDM is seeking to employ a number of high-caliber Veterans with the drive to work in the Information Technology sector. They will be trained through the award-winning FDM Academy Program to become IT specialists in Java Development, Application Support or Project Management/Business Analyst.
Once trained, these IT Consultants will represent FDM on client sites, supporting our clients’ technology requirements. Fast-track career progression is a key element of the program, placing candidates on a path that could lead into senior leadership roles within large international organizations.
FDM is currently a vendor with the Department of Veteran Affairs with the Veteran Rehabilitation and Education Program (VRE) VetSuccess Program under Chapter 31. We are currently expanding our relationship with the Department of Labor Veterans’ Education and Training Services (VETS) and WorkForce1 within the New York tri-state area. Additionally, the FDM Academy training has been reviewed and approved by the American Military University for the award of up to 21 semester hours of academic credits to be applied towards a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology.
