From Military Service to Civilian Career:

Training and Partnerships

A partnership with NextOp allows KBR to leverage their services in support of our veteran community. NextOp recruits, develops, and places high-performing, middle- enlisted (E-3 to E-7) post 9/11 military leaders into industry careers. Their employment coordinators work one on one with transitioning service members by matching them with employers for internship and apprenticeship opportunities through the Department of Defense's SkillBridge Program.
Hiring Our Heroes
Through our partnership with nonprofit Hiring Our Heroes, KBR helps find employment opportunities for service members transitioning from active duty. KBR hosts participants from Hiring Our Heroes’ 12-week Corporate Fellowship Program, providing valuable hands-on experience with the intent to hire for relevant vacancies.

University of Houston Supply Chain & Logistics
KBR partners with the University of Houston Supply Chain & Logistics Technology program to offer students — including veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces — a robust mentoring setting and exposure to real-life supply chain challenges.
SkillBridge is a DOD program that allows a unique opportunity for Service members to gain valuable civilian work experience through specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships during the ​​​​​​​last 180 days of service. SkillBridge connects Service members with industry partners in real-world job experiences.

KBR has provided me the ability to continue to support the Sailors in the Fleet and to once again be part of a team that genuinely cares and has offered me continued opportunities to grow personally and professionally.
