A-LIGN’s core values are an integral part of our culture and diverse team, and they are rooted in our guiding principles of passion, perseverance and grit. As we continue to grow our team of top talent, we are excited and honored to facilitate the transition and professional growth of military personnel in our community through our partnership with Hiring Our Heroes.
In August, A-LIGN will launch our first 12-week Corporate Fellowship Program to connect transitioning military service members with opportunities for hands-on corporate training and mentorship. In this train-to-hire structure, individuals will complete on-the-job training each week at A-LIGN followed by a “leadership huddle” with a senior-level guest speaker to prepare them for the transition to the private sector.
“A-LIGN is thrilled to build an even more robust talent pipeline with the transferable skills of our service members,” shares Kishani Noori, A-LIGN’s Vice President of Talent Acquisition. “We’re excited to not only give them exposure and training to the privacy and compliance industry but also for them to share their diverse perspectives, experience and skills with our organization.”
Tony Bai, Federal Practice Lead at A-LIGN and 20-year Air Force retiree, shares, “I’m proud and excited to see A-LIGN take part in this great program. I’ve always volunteered to help transitioning veterans, and I’m looking forward to helping A-LIGN mentor them as they learn and grow in the cybersecurity and compliance industry. As a veteran, I’m always trying to pay forward all the help I received when I transitioned out of the Air Force from those that went through the process before me.”
There will be at least five service members starting in the August cohort.
