Jacksonville, Fla. – RS&H, the national, employee-owned architecture, engineering, and consulting firm, is now a proud partner of the United States Department of Defense (DOD) SkillBridge program, providing real-world training and in-demand work experience to service members nationwide. 

Since its inception in 2011, the DOD SkillBridge program has served as a valuable opportunity for service members to gain civilian work experience through specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships during the last 180 days of service. More than 50,000 service members have participated in the program, developing skills to help them secure post-military employment.  

It’s an honor to be a part of this groundbreaking initiative and support our veterans every step of the way,” said Lisa Robert, Chief Operating Officer at RS&H. “At RS&H, we care for one another as colleagues, people, and friends. Being a partner of the DOD Skillbridge program offers another opportunity for us to live our purpose and values.” 

RS&H has supported United States federal agencies in achieving their missions for over 80 years. Whether designing administrative and community support buildings, high-performing mission support facilities, critical airfield infrastructure, or participating in the DOD Skillbridge program, RS&H is committed to supporting the nation’s military personnel. 

Partnerships like the one with DOD SkillBridge fuel diversity within the A/E/C industry and underscore RS&H’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives by providing unique opportunities for veterans who bring a wealth of skills and experience to the firm. 

For service members, DOD SkillBridge provides an invaluable chance to work and learn in civilian career areas. For industry partners, such as RS&H, DOD SkillBridge is an opportunity to access and leverage the world’s most highly trained and motivated workforce. The program structure ensures that selected service members continue to receive their full pay and benefits from the government while gaining real-world experience at participating organizations.  

With federal partners, RS&H aims to create a more connected future by developing the creative and forward-thinking solutions necessary to solve some of the biggest community challenges worldwide.  

“The DOD SkillBridge program is a fantastic opportunity for those looking to transition into civilian life,” said Scott Penney, Talent Acquisition Specialist and DOD Skillbridge Program Ambassador from RS&H. A veteran himself, Penney added, we’re proud to offer this program to assist our military talent in finding their next career path.”
