‘Bridge My Return’ website helps translate core military skills for the present workplace

Bridge My Return (BMR) is a free hiring platform connecting Veterans with military-ready employers. At Bridge My Return (BMR), we translate all of your core military skills and training. We don’t pigeonhole you into the job you did when active. Driving a truck in the military doesn’t mean you only qualify to drive a truck for a civilian company. The additional skills we’d map to that truck driver MOS would include operation, control, coordination, communication, time management and problem solving. These are skills employers seek in a host of jobs – operations, logistics, project management, sales, etc. We believe that this unleashes broader, better opportunities!
