Recruiting Veterans, Military Spouses, and Transitioning Military Personnel

Every year, about 3,000-4,000 men and women transition out of the military in South Carolina. As a place where more than 400,000 veterans have made it their home, we know the Palmetto State is a location where our heroes can thrive and be successful.

SC Future Makers has partnered with Veterans ASCEND, an online skills-matching platform that specializes in breaking employment barriers between veterans and individuals transitioning out of the military with employers. Through this partnership, SC Future Makers and Veterans ASCEND will build connections between the military community and the manufacturing industry in South Carolina to position individuals to succeed in an industry where their skills, talent, and training are highly valued.


An estimated 3,000-4,000 individuals transition out of military service annually from South Carolina military bases.

53% of the individuals transitioning out of the military service indicate they go where the career opportunities are available.

16% of Veterans currently employed are underemployed because their skills and abilities are not aligning with their career.
