“Navigating Next did not teach to some low-level common denominator of super basic civilian professional tips like be enthusiastic in your interviews or dress for success - it aims to make you the most sophisticated civilian professionals out there. This program breaks down any assumptions about what you should do and respects that each person has to come up with that independently.”

“Everyone MUST attend Shift’s Career Accelerator. It offers relevant information and services for people in each stage of their career! As I began taking the Career Accelerator course, I immediately learned what I was doing wrong and started applying the techniques and received the desired feedback. Within a month of completing the course, I had two final offers, ultimately accepting a promotion with a $10K raise, 15% annual bonus, and company equity.”

“Of the many veteran career support services in the marketplace, Shift has to be one of the best. Superb framing of strategic career goals through tactical execution of storytelling, resumes, and marketing yourself. Lots of other organizations I have worked with talk about this, but few offer the same in-depth, insightful advice. Time absolutely well spent and I highly recommend it to others.”

“This course was fantastic! I did not realize how beneficial the break out sessions we’re going to be. Service members and veterans of all ranks were able to truly talk candidly and help each other out. It was a terrific dynamic. I have told every Marine at my unit about Navigating Next ever since I started.”
