THE SOLAR READY VETS FELLOWSHIP
Through the HIRING OUR HEROES CORPORATE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM active duty transitioning service members are placed with solar employers for valuable work-based learning opportunities and on-the-job training.
Candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on their specific skills and the preferences of both parties. Fellows complete on-the-job training with their host company 4 days a week, supplemented by a Friday “leadership huddle” with senior-level guest speakers to prepare them for their transition to the private sector.
This program is offered to employers at no cost. Through this process, employers gain access to a natural recruitment pipeline of the best and brightest transitioning military talent, while gaining a deeper understanding of the veteran labor market.
Our team hosted an information session for prospective solar host companies. Watch the recorded session to learn more about the program, and what you can expect throughout the fellowship process.
The inaugural SRV Fellowships are complete!
Host company IcarusRT is a start-up quickly gaining momentum in the solar+storage market. Led by a small team of engineers, they recognized the need for talent in dimensions of business development, communications, operations and asset management as he company grows.
Icarus RT approached the Solar Ready Vets Fellowship as an opportunity to recruit top talent, with an objective of long-term hiring. Two SRV Fellows transitioning from service in the US Air Force and Marine Corps were placed with IcarusRT in operations and quality systems management roles.
Mark Anderson, President and CEO, reports that their experience through the Solar Ready Vets Fellowship has reinforced their desire to seek out and support military talent, and Icarus RT plans to incorporate veteran recruitment into long-term business development strategies.
