Dyllion Eckhardt – Alight military-to-civilian career succession success stories
Dyllion joined Alight as a project manager four years ago after 10 years of service in the U.S. Army. Prior to this, he was a project manager on several critical IT transformation projects.
On paper, he doesn’t have the qualifications typically sought by corporate hiring teams. A chance reading of a WOS/Alight advertisement changed the course of his future.
During the selection panel, it was clear Dyllion’s skills as a military operations specialist were transferable – and sought after. In his high-pressured intelligence role, Dyllion was the eyes and ears of the Commander. Fact-finding, digesting and abridging complex and mission-critical information.
“Transitioning from military to civilian life is challenging. Many leave service with skills and experience suited to civilian jobs but are unable to articulate these into non-military qualities. As a result, many veterans end up in lower-skilled, lower-paid jobs than their experience supports.
“Thanks to Alight recognizing and nurturing my potential, I have a civilian career and a lifestyle I didn’t think possible. I can vouch that Alight is genuinely invested in helping service leavers bridge the gap from service to a career in a business,” explained Dyllion Eckhardt, Alight and U.S. Army Veteran.
