Partnership provides training, mentorship, and professional development resources to active duty military and veterans
Elastic (NYSE: ESTC) (“Elastic”), the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, today announced it has partnered with VetsinTech to enable veterans to accelerate their careers in tech. Elastic will join the VetsinTech employer coalition, where they will offer free training, mentorship, and professional development opportunities to veterans and active duty military transitioning from military to civilian life.
With nearly 18 million veterans in the U.S., underemployment is one of the greatest issues faced by veterans and by their spouses. According to a recent study by LinkedIn, veterans are 37% more likely to be underemployed than nonveterans.
VetsinTech is a leading national non-profit dedicated to supporting veterans through tech-based education, employment, and entrepreneurship programs. The organization connects global technology companies with its more than 30,000 members through training and career development programs.
The partnership with VetsinTech supports the organizations’ shared objective to support current and returning veterans who want to apply their exceptional training, skills, and experience to a new career in technology. Elastic has a large community of users across industries that use Elastic solutions to achieve their essential missions, including active duty military and veterans.
The partnership was announced at the ElasticON Global user conference public sector day. For more information about the program, please visit www.elastic.co/federal/veterans.
