Planning for Your Career
If you are in the military, at some point you will be faced with a transition to the civilian world. For some service members, the very idea of making such a transition is daunting. Life as you know it instantly changes when you leave familiar military confines and venture into the job market. Suddenly, skills you learned in the service aren’t comprehensible to employers. To prepare yourself for a successful transition, you should consider several long-term career planning efforts and preparation for the many specific transition tasks.
American Sentinel understands the challenges that face service members as they approach this transition. That’s why our VP, military programs, Lt. Col. Paul Capicik (USAF, Ret.), has developed a variety of resources to help military students plan for their post-military careers.
