Certified Military Career Coaching Services
Congratulations on your service to America! If you are retiring, then you are most likely between 38-45 years of age, on average, with a degree (and advanced degrees for senior officers). So, most likely you are not really ready to retire, but rather ready to identify and conquer the next challenge: Your Second Career…
Diane’s Motto for Retiring Military:
“Bank Your Retirement Check and Live on Your New Salary” tm
Career Marketing Techniques will help you focus your career search by working through your past experiences and accomplishments to determine your skill sets and provide guidance in applying those skill sets to corporate America.
We ensure that your military background is properly represented, highlighting specific areas of expertise; we translate ranks, titles, jargon, acronyms, and showcase your military career history to a corporate employer, so they understand who you are and the value you offer their firm or agency.
Launch a Successful Civilian Career Search Campaign
Diane’s 2¢: Military members should prepare at least one to two years in advance of separating from the military.
Now your service time is over or retirement is upon you and it is your responsibility to find your next job. It can be a little scary or intimidating – the war for talent is highly competitive. The military will no longer issue orders indicating your next assignment, location, and time for reporting. So, you need to begin by designing a high impact military translated résumé and develop a career transition campaign strategy to optimize your search success.
