USAA takes soldiers from boots to suitsUSAA takes soldiers from boots to suitshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=76742013-04-16T12:31:00Z2013-04-16T00:00:00Z

SAN ANTONIO - In 2009, USAA created the Junior Military Officer Career Development Program to help soldiers transition from the combat field to corporate America.

It’s a crash course in business in which participants spend 100 days learning the ropes of various USAA departments ranging from banking to property and casualty and finance advice. After their department tours, participants are offered a permanent position in an area that matches their skillsets.

USAA’s customer service and cutting-edge products are only as good as the leaders inspiring the company’s teams. And it’s no secret that former military lieutenants and captains are accustomed to taking charge.

Sixty one officers have completed the program since its inception. The key behind the JMO program is the blending of corporate training and hands-on experience.

Staffing agencies for USAA promote the JMO program via Internet job sites. So far, requests for 20 officers have been made for the fall class 2013.
