dod SKILLBRIDGE internships

We’re excited to offer transitioning service members the chance to launch their careers through the DoD SkillBridge program.

SkillBridge interns work with a company for the last six months of their service obligation. The government continues to pay for their salary and benefits. This trial period allows the company and the veteran to test the waters before committing to a full-time role.

SkillBridge Candidates

Our remote DoD SkillBridge internships provide real-world job experience, training, and skills development. We designed this program to give you a head start on transitioning from military service to civilian employment. And you’ll still enjoy the safety net of full pay and benefits from the military.

While interning with us, we’re committed to helping you grow and develop. Our team provides world-class training, mentorship opportunities, and industry connections. Set yourself up for success with BufferSprings!
