Separating from active duty to a civilian lifestyle can sometimes be a daunting task. With the life lessons and education you received in the military it can be mind boggling why employers can and do overlook your skill sets. Here are a few items we suggest you consider when you know you are transitioning:
- Develop an appropriate timeline that will help you know when you can start applying. Consider deployments, unused leave days or planned location changes. Once you have this figured out it is appropriate to get some feelers out there in the market.
- Decide on your location. You may stay where you are separating; you may move back home or you might just go where the job takes you. It is imperative that you come to this conclusion early on so you can use your time wisely during your job search.
- Research companies in your area of interest. Find the ones who are actively hiring military veterans and make some connections using social media like LinkedIn or Twitter.
With Coach Your Career we will cover areas such as: career planning, resume writing and interviewing. We will assist you on how to create a LinkedIn and Twitter profile, connect with peers, join groups, follow companies and establish an online professional identity as part of your job search.

The influence of group coaching is extraordinary.
