FDM’s Veterans Initiative provides you with expertise, training and commercial experience in order to bridge the gap between the military and the corporate world.
Interview with U.S. Veteran Daniyel Baron, FDM Consultant placed at Citigroup
How did you find FDM Group?
I found FDM about two and a half years ago when I was out and work and I was trying to support my family. I went to a job fair and I met one of the FDM Recruiters who was a Veteran Recruiter. We talked, he told me about the organization and it seemed very interesting. I love technology. I loved what it offered.
How does Citi support veterans in the organization?
They organize events for veterans. They allow veterans to communicate with each other. Citigroup actually set up a veteran mentoring program where they set up veterans with senior lever managers in a mentorship-type program. Citi has worked pretty hard actually to accommodate veterans and make veterans more usable in the workforce.
