Military Hiring Accelerator for Transitioning Military Personnel
Transitions are typically uncertain and sometimes painful too!
This applies even more to the military transition to civilian life. The US Military and Armed Forces have the onerous task of safeguarding the territorial integrity of this great nation.
But oftentimes, military veterans end up at a career crossroads, especially at the time of exiting the service.
While the serviceman or woman may be very well geared for military operations, they may be riddled with questions on the cusp of retirement from military life; such as:
“Will my skills be valid in the civil domain after the transition?” Or, more importantly –
“Will my skills be valued in the civil domain?”
These questions and uncertainties often go unaddressed leaving the exiting military service members in a quandary.
They can address and allay the concerns of exiting military men and women. This ensures a smooth transition to a well earned civilian life, after years of service to our nation.
So, how does the smooth military transition into civilian jobs work?
