V3 Featured Company: ManTech


ManTech International Corporation uses advanced technology to help government and business meet some of their greatest challenges and succeed in their most important endeavors. As a leading employer of Veterans, they are proud that approximately 45 percent of their employees have a military background. ManTech doesn’t just offer their Veterans jobs, the company offers them opportunities to grow, advance, and build a career at ManTech, with programs that are tailored to Veteran experiences and needs.

Veterans possess a great deal of the experience and skills valued by their customers, so they are a great fit for many of ManTech’s positions. Veterans provide a competitive advantage. In the words of ManTech founder and CEO, George Pedersen:

“The soldier of today is among the most sophisticated warriors the nation has ever had. The technology that they operate and utilize in their mission requires a level of knowledge and training beyond earlier times. Service members also have qualities that we need in the workplace, and these are very important-qualities like responsibility, dedication to mission, perseverance, integrity, teamwork, and of course, leadership. We can teach skills on the job or in the classroom, but character is harder to come by.”

ManTech’s work as a global company often requires the technical expertise gained from experience with various military systems and equipment. Thus, their ability to quickly and easily draw from a wealth of Veteran talent contributes greatly to ManTech’s improved business performance and overall success. Of the more than 1,000 positions currently open at ManTech, hundreds require the training, skills, experience, and character many Veterans possess. ManTech offers jobs suitable for Veterans in C4ISR; global logistics; intelligence and counterintelligence; systems engineering; environmental, range, and sustainability; cyber security; information technology; mission assurance; test and evaluation; and healthcare IT.

In recent years, Veterans have represented approximately 45% of ManTech’s workforce. The company hopes that as a result of their recent Veteran employment initiatives, including their partnership with the V3 program, they will reach the 50% Veteran employees mark.
