Consultant Peer Support (CPS) Program

The CPS Program ensures that when a new consultant is placed on-site, they are connected with a more senior FDM consultant already working with that client to help ease their transition. These CPS ambassadors provide the guidance needed to help you get settled, connect with fellow FDMers in the area and prepare for your new role on-site.

LAUNCH YOUR CAREER

About the Program

“The training is not any harder than anything you’ve done in your military career. Everything is very transparent. My advice to returning and transitioning veterans is that if a career in corporate America is what you desire, FDM can definitely get your foot in the door in this very competitive market.”

Andrew Vu, FDM Consultant placed at UBS

“After separating from the U.S. Air Force, I was not sure of the best route to take to start my career in IT. Since joining FDM, I have been exposed to a multitude of new technologies that have shaped and refined my abilities to tackle all sorts of IT problems.”

Damina Townes, FDM Consultant placed at Barclays

“All topics taught at FDM are relevant and necessary in the IT and Finance industries. My recommendation for Marines looking to get into FDM is to practice a simple programming language. Even if you never planned on writing a single line of code in your life, the knowledge and mind-set gained through programming will help you be competitive in the IT industry. FDM is one of the few companies who look toward the future and are willing to accommodate the candidates that come to them.”

Alexander Borges, FDM Consultant placed at UBS
