FourBlock Career Readiness Program – Fall Cohort Enrolling Now

FourBlock is currently enrolling veterans for its Career Readiness Program at all locations. To be eligible, veterans and active/drilling service members must:

  • Have served on active duty after September 11, 2001
  • Be currently enrolled in or completed a bachelor’s or graduate degree program
  • Be in good academic standing
  • Have received an honorable discharge, if a veteran

The FourBlock Career Readiness Program is a semester-long, university-accredited program that provides the professional development, career exploration, and network that today’s generation of veterans need to be competitive for great careers.

We offer our program twice a year in major metropolitan cities across the country during each fall and spring academic semester. Our veterans join a cohort and meet once a week for ten weeks to receive over thirty hours of in-person lectures, networking events, and practical application. Furthermore, one-on-one mentorship is provided to each veteran in order to address personal transition and career search strategies.

Our Career Readiness Program is taught by associate instructors and guest lecturers who are professionals and senior executives from leading companies. This ensures that our veterans can begin building their professional network during the program, while also ensuring that they are receiving course content that is current with the latest career readiness and hiring practices.

Upon completion of the program, our veterans emerge with a personalized career search strategy, an improved ability to communicate their military experiences, a better understanding of corporate culture, and a professional network to build upon. All FourBlock alumni are offered follow-on support in the form of continued FourBlock career counseling and access to all FourBlock networking events nation-wide.

For veterans who do not have a program near their city, FourBlock provides career counseling services on a case-by-case basis.
