Matt D.’s Testimonial

U.S. Marine Corps | Titusville, FL

“It’s no secret that making the transition from the military to civilian life has its own unique challenges. Vet2Tech successfully helps by smoothing the transition for veterans into manufacturing and technical careers. I am one of their success stories.

First, here’s a little background on me. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I left my hometown to purse a 21 year career in the United States Marine Corps. I started out as a helicopter mechanic before becoming an Aircrewman on several different aircraft models as my career advanced.

After serving several combat tours I was given an opportunity to serve on the CH-46 production line at the Fleet Readiness Center East, located at Cherry Point, NC. Our team worked hard to become the Preferred Provider of Global Vertical Lift Aviation Industrial, Logistics, and Engineering Support Services. There was a lot involved to achieve this. We were committed to taking care of the customer by outperforming our competitors related to Quality, Schedule and Cost of our products. We strove to improve effectiveness and cost performance while never losing focus on the fact that our end users were on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I retired from the Marine Corps as a Master Sergeant in 2008 and worked in public service for several years in the Orlando, FL. Throughout my time there I missed the maintenance and technical aspects of my military experience. I started looking for another opportunity and saw one as a Regional Service Manager via Vet2Tech.

I sent Vet2Tech my resume on a Friday night and by Saturday they sent me a personal email that showed they clearly read my information. From there it was not long until I had landed in the current position I enjoy today.

Throughout the process Vet2Tech was informative, encouraging, and helped me understand how my military qualities were well suited for the industries they represent.

Vet2Tech’s insight was on target. I always thought of myself as an aviation guy, they saw my background in managing maintenance and service in the Marine Corps as a natural transition into the role as a Regional Service Manager.

There are many of us that will succeed on a technical level and even in an executive or leadership capacity. For veterans, we need to understand the skills we developed in the military are applicable in other industries and resist limiting ourselves. We have a lot to offer.

In both the military and in the field service and manufacturing industries it’s important to know your mission. You must have the drive and focus to get the job done, no excuses … just results.”

Vet2tech worked with me personally and followed through with me until I was hired by a manufacturing company in my area.

I was skeptical because many organizations say they want to help veterans, but few really do. Within a day [of speaking with Vet2Tech] I had job interviews scheduled with four companies.

The position I received just one week after my initial call from [Vet2Tech] isn’t just any job… it’s the right job! It is just the type of work I had been searching for...
