About Us

BufferSprings is a Boston-based consulting and training firm founded in 2021. We are proud to be 100% service-disabled veteran-owned and operated. 

Our team is passionate about connecting our corporate partners with the top talent in the greater military-connected community. But, more importantly, we are a missino-driven company with big goals to shake up a very stagnant industry.

Want to join us?

Partner Collaboration

We are your long-term partner in veteran hiring. We want to help you design and implement effective and sustainable military programs focused on retention and community engagement.

Community Engagement

We partner with local and national organizations obsessed with empowering the military-connected community. These community partners are the backbone of our Community Immersion Program.

Veteran Community Building

Whether you’re still on active duty, just transitioned, or have been out for many years, we’re in your corner. Our community offers you training, mentorship, industry connections, and employment opportunities. 

Market Innovation

The conversation around veteran hiring shouldn’t be limited to attending job fairs and ad impressions. Instead, we create innovative and comprehensive solutions designed to truly move the needle in veteran recruiting and retention.

We Are Dedicated to the Military-Connected Community

We focus on a triad of players in the military-connected community: veterans and their spouses, employers, and organizations dedicated to veteran causes.

Why all three? Focusing on only one just doesn’t move the needle on veteran employment in a meaningful way. Instead, we look at veteran hiring holistically.
