In May, Trident University International (Trident) marked its 50th event with Centurion Military Alliance (CMA), an organization dedicated to serving military populations through career training and development workshops and resources.
CMA’s services are key for Trident’s military-affiliated students and alumni, and are among the resources offered through the Trident Military Assistance Center (TMAC). Collaboration with CMA, which started in 2013, remains frequent due to similarities in mission and Trident’s desire to provide their students and alumni with the tools for professional success.
Since men and women who have a bachelor’s or master’s degree already in hand tend to experience a smoother transition into the civilian workforce, Trident plays an important role in CMA’s workshops. The University offers accessible, affordable, and rigorous academic programs, and the veterans on Trident’s staff have led to the improvement of workshop quality and more opportunities for tailored, one-on-one counseling.
“CMA’s military-to-civilian career transition workshops have been invaluable to the Trident community. The skills and network gained through the workshops have been key to post-military success for many of our students,” said Esmeralda Silva, Vice President of Outreach & Strategic Alliances.
With the goal of reducing military unemployment rates, CMA serves active duty military, veterans, wounded warriors, caregivers to wounded warriors, and military spouses through their CMA Warrior Transition Readiness Program, a daylong career and professional skills workshop.
CMA’s path to a successful transition includes educational tools like resume writing, mock interviewing with HR professionals, elevator speech development, networking best practices, financial readiness, professional online presentation, and the value/purpose of continuous education.
CMA’s executive team, which consists of veterans Jarod and Chaunte Myers, understand the veteran experience and what it takes to succeed.
“Each transition is like a fingerprint. It is unique to you and your situation – and it needs to be treated as such,” stated Jarod Myers, CEO of CMA.
