Wounded Warrior Career Development Program
For military personnel with combat-related disabilities
The Sandia National Laboratories Wounded Warrior Career Development Program (WWCP) provides unique limited-term employment in support of national security missions while acquiring career enabling skills through training and mentoring. WWCP participants that sustain excellent job performance have the potential to transition to regular full-time employment.
The WWCP has established a number of goals that will be used to identify, recruit, hire, and train disabled military personnel who meet program criteria. The goals are to:
- Provide activities to develop and refine career enabling skill sets that support Sandia's national security missions
- Support additional education (flexible work schedules may be negotiated)
- Provide a comprehensive support system
- Coordinate program benefits and services through multiple agencies in a collaborative atmosphere
- Coordinate professional, individualized functional training, guidance, and support to help participants successfully transition from a military career to a civilian career
Modeled after the successful Oracle Wounded Warrior program that has produced a number of top performers for Oracle, military veterans who are accepted into Sandia's WWCP will be expected to:
- Contribute to Sandia National Laboratory's national security missions
- Actively pursue appropriate college education while in the program (achieving an advanced degree is desired)
- Continue to develop and refine job related skills through training
- Engage in executive-level mentoring
- Share experiences to improve understanding of combat theater and enhance connections with Sandia work

To maximize the opportunities for WWCP participants' success, Sandia will work with its collaborative partners to develop and implement a process for identifying and selecting candidates with a strong chance for success. Sandia personnel will work with Veteran's Administration Health Care personnel to determine selection tools and eligibility differentiators. The selection of individuals "ready" to transition back to civilian life will provide the best opportunity for success.
