The organization serves as a point of contact for returning veterans, helping identify the needs of military service members and their spouses and connecting them to appropriate service providers, including employers, recruiters, universities, community colleges, the Veterans Administration, and loan providers.

“This certification allows us to support our service members and their spouses who have given so selflessly,” said Darwin Nelson, president of Tetra Tech AEG. “The program allows us to give back by helping our veterans fulfill their career aspirations in our community and across the nation, while enabling us to attract and retain the right talent for the challenging work we do here at Tetra Tech. We look forward to this partnership with NEOVETS and the opportunities that lie ahead.”

NEOVETS holds strict standards for becoming a CMTE, which include complete transparency in sharing best practices, proper training, access to internal company veterans resource groups, tailored outreach and targeted recruitment, and overall internal veteran demographic trends.
