WE’re On a mission…

Create meaningful skillBridge Opportunities for every servicemember

We know you have choices, and we also know there’s a lot of those choices you have to make during your transition. Our SkillBridge program is designed by people who’ve walked in your shoes – we’ve served, we’ve taken advantage of the SkillBridge program ourselves, and we understand the need for guidance as you work towards your own separation and transition into a civilian career.

“The SkillBridge program provided me the necessary time to step away and figure out where to go next in my life.  The support from the Ruddershift team felt like my unit in the military did – they were with me every step of the way with meaningful mentorship, advice, and support.  Every servicemember should be afforded the time to utilize the SkillBridge program. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I’m at today.”

Tom Marsland, SkillBridge Graduate, Ruddershift

What sets us apart from the other skillBridge providers?

What sets us apart from the rest? We work to empower small businesses, not just the big names. Interviewing at the big companies can be daunting, and the jobs can be limited. With an estimated 33.2 million small businesses in America that account for 99.9% of all U.S. businesses, why stick to the 0.1%?

Small business are credited with 63% of all new jobs created from 1995 to 2021. Again, why focus on just 37% of the job market when you could look at the 100%?


We Understand the Transition

Ruddershift is employment-focused, of course. But additionally, we understand that the transition from military to civilian life is more than just finding employment. From your VA benefits filing to separation processing, household goods moves, and general support, we’ll be here with you through check-ins and discussions with our staff (who’ve been through all of that ourselves!) periodically throughout the SkillBridge internship.

Open Roles – Coming Soon!

We work with businesses to help them design their own SkillBridge program or use our 3rd-party provider approval to run a program, so we’re able to place you in a SkillBridge at any participating company in the United States.
