Are you staring down a military-to-civilian transition, but feeling behind the power curve because you haven’t yet figured out your future? Or a veteran, not quite sure if you made the right decision for your first job after taking off the uniform? You’re not alone. Work with experts on the transition process to help you better understand yourself and your goals through assigned readings, in-class presentations, and hands-on exercises with your teammates. You’ll learn that your uncertainty is a normal part of this process - and you’ll learn to adapt to the ambiguous world of life after the military.
Pair your newly-uncovered career interests with the power of your military experience and learn how to tell a compelling story to civilian recruiters in your field of interest. Understand what it takes to prepare for and nail an interview as you compete against impressive civilian applicants. Learn what it takes to build and leverage a powerful network to unearth important intel and discover opportunities.
