Guggenheim Veterans Transition Assistance Program
VTAP is a 10-week paid summer internship designed to provide Veteran Associates with substantive work experience, knowledge about the industry, and professional development opportunities that will enhance Veterans’ transition into the civilian workforce. In addition to managing the Veteran Associate’s day to day responsibilities, business unit participants will share their career experiences with the Veteran Associate and provide insights into our culture, services, and operations. Business units pair the Veteran Associate with a business unit liaison that assists in providing advice and guidance in the daily operations of the business unit.
There are five key components to the VTAP internship. They include:
(1) formal on-boarding and classroom lectures, (2) on-the-job training, (3) mentoring, (4) networking, and (5) volunteer opportunities with veterans service organizations. The Veterans Initiative Advisory Committee, one of our business development resource groups, coordinates the pairing of a Guggenheim mentor with a Veteran Associate.
Wells Fargo Veteran Employment Transition (VET) Internship
Once the internship begins, VET program management is there to ensure a well-structured and productive 8+ week experience. Interns have weekly check-ins with their program leaders, are assigned group tasks, go through culture training, and are offered networking opportunities as a cohort. We don’t stop there; we offer office hours for the veterans and separate office hours for managers to answer questions that may come up along the way, with a midway check point to ensure we are delivering the best program possible.
As the program has grown over the years, Wells Fargo has found VET program tactics are working. Over the past two years, more than 93% of participants have been offered full-time employment upon completion of the program. In 2021, 44 interns completed the program and found full-time, salaried roles at Wells Fargo.
