Summary

Mission Transition is an essential career-change guide for any transitioning veteran that wants to avoid false starts and make optimal career choices following active duty.

Every year, about a quarter of a million veterans leave the military - most of whom are grossly unprepared for the transition. These service members have developed incredible leadership, problem-solving, and practical skills that are underutilized once they reach the civilian world, a detriment to both themselves and society.

Well-intentioned Transition Assistance Programs and other support structures within the armed forces often leave veterans fending for themselves. And the mission-first culture of the military results in service members focusing on their active duty roles in the year leading up to their separation, leaving them little time to adequately prepare to join the civilian world.

Mission Transition guides military personnel through the entire process of making a successful move into civilian professional life. This audiobook will:

  • Guide you through the process of discovering what path you want to take going forward
  • Teach you the strategies that will make your résumé stand out
  • Provide suggestions to help you prepare for and ace the interview
  • Discuss ways to acclimate to your new organization’s culture and pay it forward to other veterans

Each chapter includes advice from other veterans, illustrations of key concepts, summaries, and suggested resources.

Charts, tables, and assessments are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Comprehensive military transition advice

This is the most complete book on military transition that I have come across. Very well done with true life stories from some who have transitioned before you. it is an excellent compilation that should be read by everybody 6 to 12 months away from their ETS.
