New partnership connects USCG veterans and their spouses to military-friendly employers

BRYN MAWR, Pa. – October 8, 2020 – As veteran unemployment continues to skyrocket, Aliro is making the job search for transitioning service members easier, announcing today the launch of a new partnership with the United States Coast Guard Academy Alumni Association (USCGAAA). The new partnership supports members in transferring the skills attained at the United States Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) and throughout their careers with the U.S. Coast Guard to the civilian world.

As part of their initiative to strengthen career services for graduates from the USCGA, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Alumni Association has partnered with Aliro to put into place a solution allowing members — and their spouses — to connect their unique skills and talents to job opportunities. This exciting new program not only provides pathways to success for jobseekers, but also promotes relationship building, mentorship, and advocacy.

“At Aliro, we are passionate about using the power of referrals to drive veteran employment. Our unique veteran ecosystem connects military-friendly employers to the best candidates, enabling organizations to hire smarter through our referral-based platform and ease the transition of service members, military spouses, and veterans into private sector jobs. Aliro is genuinely excited to benefit both employers and job seekers from the USCGAAA in this new partnership,” says Robert Archibald, Founder and CEO of Aliro.

USCGAAA’s new job referral program, powered by the Aliro platform’s military community feature, will:

  • Ease the transition from the USCG into civilian life by creating a job placement and referral ecosystem dedicated to USCG alumni.
  • Support networking and mentorship within the USCGAAA community by connecting employers with alumni who will have the opportunity to become future employers and mentors.
  • Match veteran candidates with organizations that value the discipline, commitment, and work ethic of veterans.

“It has long been our goal to find better ways to connect our alumni to opportunities in the private sector to help drive success in their lives,” said CAPT Andrea Marcille (ret), President of the USCGAAA. “Through this new partnership, we hope to connect our members to meaningful opportunities with employers and mentors — many of whom may be alumni — and in-turn, possibly become future employers and mentors themselves, thus creating a self-sustaining ecosystem.”

“The extraordinary devotion to duty and commitment to service of Coast Guard Academy graduates extend well beyond their active duty service,” said Admiral Thad Allen ’71, 23rd Commandant of the Coast Guard. “The USCGA Alumni Association is creating pathways for success that strengthen the ‘Long Blue Line’ of alumni through networking, mentorship, and technology. Thanks to the Alumni Association for taking this significant step to better serve our alumni and their spouses.”

In the upcoming months, the platform will continue to introduce more roles, at all levels from individual contributor to senior leadership opportunities. The platform will also curate more job opportunities from the alumni network, veteran advocates, and Aliro’s corporate sponsors.
