Skillbridge is a great way to sample Financial Services as a career path.  Service Members (including CSP) continue to receive their military pay and benefits from the government while participating in our Skillbridge Fellowships. To participate in SkillBridge, you must be approved by your military supervisor.  You are also subject to a strict selection process.  Our objective is for you to know by the end of the Fellowship that this is the career for you.  From there, you will have the opportunity to be accepted directly into our Financial Advisor Apprenticeship with salary and benefits when you transition.
