September 15, 2006, Newsletter Issue #31: One Last PCS?

Tip of the Week

Those who transition from military to civilian life make one last transition. For many, a successful military transition job placement is critical. Your preparations for leaving the military should start about a year before your separation date. The longer you wait to start, the rougher the move will be. Fortunately, the military is required to provide transition assistance including training, counseling and resume seminars.

Military transition job placement usually includes signing up for "headhunter" organizations that specialize in putting military people into comparable jobs on the outside. These organizations vary greatly from company to company, so it's a good idea to research them thoroughly before settling on a service. It's also advisable to look into federal jobs via the official job site for the US government, USAJobs.opm.gov. Many people, depending on the nature of their military job, consider this the best resource for locating comparable employment.
