Sharp Decisions’ V.E.T.S.™ (Vocations, Education, and Training for Service members) Program is a relatively new venture, started by Sharp Decisions CEO Karen Ross in March with a $300,000 investment of her own money. The program focuses on utilizing the skill sets veterans already have, while training them in specific software capabilities and then placing them with private sector companies seeking software-testing assistance.
Over the July 4 holiday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter took notice of the program. He took the time, via Twitter, to commend the work of the V.E.T.S. Program and the work of Sharp Decisions in taking the time to bring these veterans into their company and give them an opportunity for a new career path in technology, one that brings a sustainable, long-term future to their careers.
