Navigating your career transition

We're dedicated to helping veterans, active-duty military service members, and their spouses find jobs after their service. We offer assistance and programs to honor their work and help them have great careers outside the military.

Here are some recommended resources:

SkillBridge Program - Active duty to veteran career

Blue Cross NC is committed to the successful transition of our men and women in uniform. Working through the Department of Defense (DoD), we are a DoD SkillBridge industry partner and authorized provider of SkillBridge internships for service members completing their last 180 days of active duty.

This great program helps service members try out a career in an area that matches their interests for up to 6 months. Perks of the program include connecting with VetNet employee network members and getting a veteran mentor.
