Chief of Staff,
Breakline is by far the BEST transitioning program for veterans. The ability to visit, network, and connect with so many top tech companies, CEOs, and venture capitalists in such a short time span is so valuable and something you won't find anywhere else. The program is also FUN! It's always great to connect with similar minded veterans.
Principal Value Engineer,
I can't say enough about how awesome the BreakLine team is. Everyone on the team is incredibly supportive and has so much insight into the tech industry. Since going through the BreakLine program, I feel so much more confident in my abilities and how they transfer over into tech.
I never thought this day would come and I'm so excited for the opportunity. I can't thank you all enough for opening the doors, but more importantly, for making me feel welcome in this BreakLine community from day one!
BreakLine is the first organization where I felt that I could bring my full self. 100%. No edits.
BreakLine could not have come into my life at a better time. I was on the edge of burnout, lacking a sense of purpose, and had major imposter syndrome. The Breakline team came in and helped me establish my priorities, take the lead in telling my own story, and helped me commit to finding work that lined up with my values. I now have a job that matches my skills, desire for growth, and purpose.
BreakLine is not only an organization that hustles with you to get a career in Tech; it's a lifelong family connection that you can rely on for advice on your personal and career goals.
