  • At FDM, we recognize the incredible value that military talent brings to our business and are proud to be a military friendly organization supporting the employment of veterans. The FDM Veterans Initiative offers military veterans a tailored career path to support their transition into the corporate workforce. We provide veterans with vocational training in a number of disciplines both business and technically focused, followed by commercial experience working with our prestigious clients as professional IT and business Consultants. This puts veterans on a specialized career path and supports their transition into the corporate world.

    Supporting your success

    We take a number of measures to ensure a successful transition for veterans in our Academy Program. The FDM Academy courses have been reviewed and approved by American Military University for the award of up to 21 semester hour credits towards a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology.

    In August 2015, FDM Group and the U.S. Army joined together as partners with the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement, bringing together two programs invested in helping military veterans easily find jobs after they leave active duty. The FDM Veterans Initiative now guarantees that any Army Veteran with the Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program can have an interview for a position in FDM’s Careers Program. It’s a win for the Army and it’s a win for FDM.

    For more on the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement, which took place in the FDM New York Office, watch this video highlighting the day:

    We have demonstrated our commitment to the veteran community in many ways, including through our partnerships and sponsorships of charitable organizations. FDM focuses on aiding groups dedicated to aiding active military, veterans, and their families such as:


    • Veterans on Wall Street (VOWS)

    • eMentor Program

    “Separating from the military and transitioning back into civilian life is one of the largest adjustments I have ever made. What made it difficult is the translation of my military experience into a language that could be understood by civilian employers. The training and character preparation I received from FDM has not only provided me with tools necessary to successfully function in a corporate environment but FDM has also helped to bridge the gap between veterans and civilian employers. As a result I am currently working at Credit Suisse as a PMO in portfolio management.”

    Darell Powell-Lee, FDM Consultant and former US Army Finance Specialist

    “FDM has a Veterans Initiative that allows me and other veterans to apply the technical skills learned in the military, while also learning the latest technologies that are used in today’s workforce. I received much needed support from the very beginning of the program with FDM. It’s amazing to have organizations like FDM that recognize the importance of hiring veterans and providing us with more tools to become successful in our civilian experience.”

    Lissette Roca, FDM Consultant and former US Army Telecommunications Supervisor

    “Going through training at FDM was a life-altering experience. The material was challenging at times, but I learned a great deal. I have met wonderful people and made some great friends along the way. It was exciting to graduate from the FDM Academy and receive my certificate. It symbolizes that I have completed a step in starting my career in IT.”
