Veteran Employment Transition (VET) Program

VET Program Overview

The VET Program is an 8-week spring and fall paid program that targets experienced talent. Veterans start as program associates with many earning growth promotions based on their performance into various mid and senior-level full-time positions across the Wells Fargo enterprise.

The VET Program starts in May and September for our spring and fall cohorts respectively. Each cohort begins with an intensive virtual training and orientation session led by professional instructors and senior members of the Wells Fargo team. You'll network with your peers and Wells Fargo leaders while you develop your skills and knowledge of our financial products and services. Then, you’ll join a team where you will receive on-the-job training, coaching, and development opportunities that include:

  • On-the-job experience: Working as part of a team within your business group, you will learn how to perform the daily tasks and see how our actions serve our internal and external customers as a contributor, listener and observer.
  • Professional support: You will be matched with a job coach who will team with your manager to answer your questions, help you through challenging situations, and give you feedback throughout the course of the internship.
  • Leadership insights: Wells Fargo’s leaders will provide insight on trends across the industry, our expectations, and how to make the most of your VET Program experience.
  • Networking: Whether engaged in a veteran cohort experience, working with your team, or learning about strategies from managers, the networking potential through your experience is great. 


Program locations

Locations vary with each cohort, based on business need. Most VET Program roles have a hybrid setting with associates in the office about three days a week, but some are fully in-office.  Program offers are made for a specific role and location based on candidate’s interest, experience, and business need. Program professional development is delivered virtually, allowing participation from their various office locations across the Wells Fargo enterprise.


After the program

The goal of the VET Program is to promote participants who meet performance expectations into similar full-time roles within Wells Fargo following the program. The program participant should be prepared to work at the Wells Fargo location in which the offer is extended.



If you are a problem-solver who enjoys working in a fast-paced environment, working hard to achieve a goal, learning new things, and improving yourself, this program might be a good fit for you. In addition, successful candidates are team-players who work well in a collaborative environment and have strong situational analysis skills. All ranks are encouraged to apply as we are hiring at multiple levels.

Applicants for this program must be off ACTIVE DUTY one day prior to the start of the program (no exceptions - except terminal leave and/or traditional Guard or Reserve status, which are eligible). If you are chosen as a final candidate, you must be able to attend the virtual final round hiring event to be considered for the program.

We encourage you to visit our VET Program information page to sign up for our veteran talent community and to learn more about upcoming dates, deadlines, and details for the program.
