National nonprofit American Corporate Partners (ACP) works with post-9/11 Veterans to help them find meaningful employment after military service. Whether Veterans are looking for a higher paying job or seeking a promotion, an ACP Mentor can help guide them toward positive employment outcomes. The program helps Veterans find great jobs — and the right jobs for them.

All industries and career paths are represented and Veterans can explore career opportunities, learn about job search tips and tricks, gain resume and interviewing skills, and get connected directly to employers who are hiring. Since 2010, more than 22,000 Veterans have already found success through ACP.

In addition to facilitating thousands of nationwide mentorships, ACP staff works hard to connect Veterans to meaningful employment opportunities at its partner companies. Veterans who become part of the ACP network also enjoy other benefits, such as:

  • A free online question and answer community, ACP AdvisorNet, to get quick career advice and search job postings.
  • Wednesday Webinars with partner companies and hiring managers.

What to Expect after Applying?

ACP will reach out within 24 hours and schedule a 15-minute phone call to ask a few more clarifying questions in order to match the Veteran with the right mentor. ACP will introduce the Veteran to a mentor within several weeks of their application to the program, and will check in throughout the year to provide customized resources and ensure positive outcomes. Ninety-eight percent of Veterans would recommend ACP.
