Synopsis

<p>Mission Transition&nbsp;is an essential career-change guide for any transitioning veteran that wants to avoid false starts and make optimal career choices following active duty.</p><p>Every year, about a quarter of a million veterans leave the military - most of whom are grossly unprepared for the transition. These servicemembers have developed incredible leadership, problem-solving, and practical skills that are underutilized once they reach the civilian world, a detriment to both themselves and society.</p><p>Well-intentioned Transition Assistance Programs and other support structures within the armed forces often leave veterans fending for themselves. And the mission-first culture of the military results in servicemembers focusing on their active duty roles in the year leading up to their separation, leaving them little time to adequately prepare to join the civilian world.</p><p>Mission Transition&nbsp;guides military personnel through the entire process of making a successful move into civilian professional life. This book will:</p>Guide you through the process of discovering what path you want to take going forwardTeach you the strategies that will make your r&eacute;sum&eacute; stand outProvide suggestions to help you prepare for and ace the interviewDiscuss ways to acclimate to your new organization&rsquo;s culture and pay it forward to other veterans<p>Each chapter includes advice from other veterans, illustrations of key concepts, summaries, and suggested resources.</p>
