Professional Networking in Military Paves Way to Careers LaterSeptember 21, 2018 | :
by Dr. Jarrod Sadulski
Servicemembers have many options to prepare for civilian employment after their military service. They can take advantage of education and training programs, acquire skills that are attractive to civilian hiring managers, and learn how to translate their military experience into civilian employment terminology. Another important step is professional networking.
In this digital age, servicemembers can greatly increase their chances of a successful transition to a civilian career by building a professional network that helps them re-enter the civilian world. The earlier servicemembers determine what civilian career field they are interested in, the sooner they should develop a professional network in that industry.
