Our Services

Talent Management 

We partner with successful businesses owners from all industries that allow us to source, interview, and refer transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses to their organization. The benefits of hiring from these 3 categories are limitless but include a detailed oriented employee, someone that is task focused, can multi-task, and has superior leadership capabilities.

Military Internships

The Department of Defense SkillBridge Program. Allows service members to depart active duty up to 180-days prior to their end of active duty service to work in industries such as yours. They continue to receive compensation from the military therefore you do not pay them.

Building & Leading Resilient Teams

Collective resilience is the team’s ability to overcome adversity, and then adapt and grow together because of that adversity. Resilient teams are the key to both individual and organizational resilience. Resilient teams are stronger together and they make learning and change possible. This development program provides the knowledge and skills required to build and lead resilient teams in organizations of any size, in any industry.

Everything DiSC

(S)teadiness  (C)onscientiousness.

Resume Generation

One of the most difficult portions of the employment process is having a resume that is appealing to Human Resource (HR) Professionals. In fact, most companies use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) that screens resumes before they are viewed by HR.

This means if your resume doesn’t have key words from the job description, you are likely never to get a response and if so, it’ll begin with “Thank you for your interest, unfortunately, we have decided to move forward with other candidates that better align with our interests.”

Elite 9 Veteran Talent Acquisition Services, LLC edits your existing resume and aligns it more clearly to the job description you are considering
