TIAG and MSSA partner for veteran hiring

TIAG—an innovative technology company providing transformational solutions to private industry and across the Department of Defense—has partnered with the Microsoft Software and Systems Academy (MSSA) to hire talented veterans who want to feel empowered in their careers, stay ahead of customer expectations, and build brand loyalty.

By partnering with more than 600 companies, the MSSA plays an important role in addressing both the veteran community’s employment gap and the skills gap impacting the technology field. As a hiring partner of Microsoft Software and Systems Academy, TIAG has committed to hiring MSSA graduates and empowering potential candidates to succeed when designing modern technology and IT solutions. 

“MSSA stands out from other programs due to their specialized Microsoft competencies and certifications,” shares Umang Modi, TIAG Managing Principal and Chief Strategy Officer, “Every candidate we have worked with in our 4-year relationship has exceeded expectations. We are excited to be a part of this program and look forward to more great hires and opportunities!”

By committing to hiring MSSA graduates, TIAG proudly supports those who have served in the military by helping them build meaningful careers in the technology sphere.  

“Being part of the MSSA hiring program is a great opportunity for TIAG because we can find talent who are currently serving or who are in the process of transitioning back into civilian life and expose them to modern technologies and the corporate world,” shares Caitlin Yelinek, Director of Talent Acquisition, “Due to their mission-oriented outlook and sense of teamwork aimed at problem-solving, we are thrilled to hire MSSA graduates and welcome them to the TIAG family!” 

Since Microsoft Software and Systems Academy launched in 2013, more than 90 percent of graduates have stayed on the job two years and longer.
