Overview

Since our founding in 2009, Legion has always loved veterans and military service members. But now we’ve formalized that love into an official Veteran Externship Program. Our Externship is a three-month program to help separating/retiring veterans and returning service members in the Guard or Reserve find their footing in the civilian world and figure out what it is they want to do now that their time in the service is complete. The upside is that you’ll get actual experience from your externship that you can apply to your future career in the civilian world. The downside is that you might be overwhelmed by our awesomeness.

Responsibilities

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US:

 

  • Income. Yes, this is a paid position with hours available from 20 to 40 per week.
  • Training. You will receive the same training as our full-time employees.
  • Real work experience. You will work mostly with our Problem Solvers on the sales floor, but you will also rotate through the other departments at Legion.
  • Professional development. Our staff will help you tweak your resume, sharpen your civilian-world interview skills and connect with organizations that hire veterans.
  • Mentorship. Each extern will be matched with a Legion veteran, so you have a guide to help you through the transition to civilian employment.
  • Potential for future employment. The externs will have the opportunity to apply for any open positions at Legion. If you love us, and we love you, we’ll work hard to find a way to keep you here.

Qualifications

WHAT WE WOULD EXPECT FROM YOU:

 

  • Hard work. We know you are no stranger to hard work, and what we ask you to do will be about a million percent easier than anything you did in the service.   
  • A three-month commitment. We want all our externs to benefit from the time they have here, so we ask them to commit to the full three-month program.
  • To share the opportunity. Once you are done with your externship, and you see for yourself what a great place Legion is, we’d like you to tell other veterans about us.
  • You will have to pass a background check, which we know won’t be a problem for you!
