MISSION TRANSITION

Matthew Louis

Every year, a quarter of a million veterans leave the military. One might think that these men and women, some of whom have spent their entire lives serving our country, would be prepared for that transition. However, that's rarely the case. MISSION TRANSITION is a career-change guide to help transitioning veterans avoid false starts and make optimal, practical career choices following active duty.

Despite good intentions, Transition Assistance Programs and other support structures within the armed forces often leave veterans fending for themselves. On top of this, veterans themselves are typically so focused on their roles in active duty that they're unprepared to join the civilian world.

MISSION TRANSITION guides military personnel through the process of a successful move into civilian professional life. It starts with foundational ideas, like understanding who you are and who you want to be, then explores strategies to make your résumé stand out and to ace the interview, and discusses ways to get accustomed to the new culture and pay it forward to other veterans. Each chapter includes advice from other veterans, illustrations of key concepts, summaries, and suggested resources.
