Vencore’s Brett Dody, Senior VP of Intelligence Systems Group, interviewed on technological disruptions to the IC

Brett Dody has always been a man with an eye on supporting “the mission.”

But after an extensive federal career leading teams that developed communications, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities to support the national intelligence mission, he was ready for something new.

After taking five months to decompress from “the everyday grind of public work,” Dody decided the time was right to transition into the private sector.

Today the former intelligence official and a Brookings Institution Congressional Fellow is the vice president of the Intelligence Systems Group at Vencore (formerly the SI Organization).

Vencore Collects Schools Supplies for Needy Children

Vencore employees in Pennsylvania and Virginia recently wrapped a summer-long school supply drive which provided money and over 3,800 items to the Cradles to Crayons and Northern Virginia Family Service charities.

The Vencore employees, in partnership with The United Way, contributed items to the Cradles to Crayons charity which supports Philadelphia-area children in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive at school. The supplies will help ensure a great start to the new school year for these children.

Vencore employees also contributed items to the Northern Virginia Family Services charity, which helps individuals and families find new paths to self-reliance and brighter futures.

The annual summer school supply drive is another example of Vencore's commitment to community outreach.

Vencore Tours College Campuses

Vencore recruiters will attend career fairs this fall at the University of Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech), George Mason University and the University of Maryland. Our goal is to recruit sharp, young individuals in technical fields to help mold and shape the growing culture of our new company and represent our company ethics at client sites.

Based on workforce planning projections and our current needs on client sites, we are heavily recruiting in the technical engineering fields -- specifically systems engineers, aerospace engineers, electrical engineers and those with computer science, Intel analyst and cyber analyst degrees. We strive to hire graduating individuals with a 3.0 grade point average or higher -- those who have had strong internships or school projects.

Vencore attends college career fairs every fall -- soon in areas beyond the DC metro, east coast area. As our company has grown, so have our needs for diverse and specialized candidates.

In the spring, we attend fairs focused on internships. Our growing internship program is a great opportunity for us to hire young professionals and mentor them for a summer. We have had great success with bringing candidates on board, who then return for additional internships or full time positions once they graduate.

About 25% of Vencore employees are entry level or early level professionals. We offer a spires program, which is an accelerated learning and development leadership program. This allows entry level employees to take a fast track to where they want to be. We offer a strong tuition reimbursement program for employees who wish to receive their master’s degree in a relevant field.

This is an amazing time to join Vencore as our footprint in the government and commercial sectors are growing tremendously. We hope to see you at one of our career fairs this fall!
