Bridge My Return provides military Veterans and transitioning service members with an online platform full of job-matching tools that help them highlight and utilize their skills in new careers as well—as coaching programs to combat transition trauma—at no cost to them.

Bridge My Return’s proprietary technology includes a skills translator, automatic resume builder, and job-matching algorithm, and its personalized coaching program guides the candidate before, during, and after the hiring process.

All services are provided at no cost to military Veterans and transitioning service members. Employers are charged placement fees that are in line with industry averages.

  • 80% of employers do not have recruitment programs for Veterans.
