Why this blog?

I just read an interview conducted in September 2008 and it really hits home.

"Eighty-one percent of returning military personnel surveyed last fall by Military.com said they did not feel fully prepared to enter the job market."

With the efforts and resources being expended on a transition program, something is being missed. As I do research for this blog, I find that there is an overwhelmingly disproportionate number of sites and companies that want to put you in an interview for a job. While there is no doubt that having a steady income is important, if you don't know how to market your skills and sell yourself in that interview, all you've done is practice at failing to make the most of the opportunity.

If eighty-one percent of military members don't feel fully prepared to enter the civilian job market, then nineteen percent will TRULY be competing for positions in an economy that is already strained.

Stay connected here for further information on how to put yourself in that nineteen percent. We will discuss a strategic plan that will have you prepared fro whatever the corporate world has to offer. Your transition is a work in progress that should begin when you make the decision to leave the service.

Until then...
