Veterans Get I.T.

(Troy, MI) Expetec of Michigan, an IT company located in the Detroit area, Blue Chip Talent Inc., a dedicated staffing company that specializes in finding the most qualified IT talent, and New Horizons Computer Learning Centers are working together to launch the Veterans Get I.T. program. Veterans Get I.T. was created for Veterans to establish a career in IT by building a foundation of expertise through classroom and hands on business experience.

During the application process Blue Chip Talent Inc. will screen and choose the best matches for the program based on the criteria set by Expetec of Michigan. Ron Pawczuk, President of Blue Chip Talent Inc. stated, “Blue Chip Talent is excited to be part of this program as the talent acquisitions partner. The prospect of providing a deserving veteran the opportunity of a lifelong career in IT is both rewarding and humbling. We can’t do enough for the people who serve our country.”

Once the candidates are chosen they will attend the dual education program at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers for technical training and Expetec of Michigan for hands on instruction. Heather Keller has shared New Horizons excitement about the program, "New Horizons has long established their desire and ability to assist veteran students who wish to enter or further their careers in the IT industry, and so when approached by Mr. St. John, New Horizons welcomed the opportunity to help even more veterans."

Veterans Get I.T. is expected to be a two year educational program. The candidates are not responsible for the cost associated with the education received at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers. Additionally, the veterans will be compensated for the work they complete at Expetec of Michigan.

The program is looking for veterans to fill the positions of a business management trainee and a technical trainee. The chosen candidates will learn all parts of the IT business such as dispatching, project management, time management and customer service. In addition, each will concentrate on projects specific to their title. The business management trainee will focus on items such as managing the sales team, marketing, how to efficiently run an office, make budgets as well as a profit. The technical trainee will focus on projects dealing with PC set up and installation, firewall set up and installation, network design, server transition and upgrades as well as learning how to assess a network. At the moment the program is looking to place two veterans, although the intention is to grow in the future.

When the program is completed the technical trainee will be given the choice to either stay on board with Expetec, or be placed by Blue Chip Talent Inc. at another location. The intention of training the veteran in the position of business management is to have them gain enough education and hands on experience to open another Expetec location. The current goal is to have the program underway by the end of February 2015. The program is currently looking for sponsors, for sponsorship opportunities please contact Mike St. John at Expetec of Michigan, Heather Keller at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers or Susan Tosto at Blue Chip Talent Inc.
