You do not have to settle for a career you don't love. There are more resources to help you move towards your passion than you think. Have a dream job in mind? Research it. Find out who's in charge of hiring. Introduce yourself to them and let them know you're ready to do what it takes to work with them. Peer to peer communication is always more impactful than plain application submissions. When you're done, thank them for their time and keep on moving. You'll find that you get there faster than you think.
On this week's episode, we talk with Dr. Susan Kelly, at the US Army Garrison Bavaria. She's the Director of TVPO, which stands for transition to veterans program office. The secretary of defense stood the TVPO up to oversee the implementation of a total redesign of the transition assistance program targeting the hundreds of thousands of servicemembers who are going to be transitioning out of active duty to civilian life over the next several years.
Kevin Releford spent five years in the Army as an Armor Officer. After transitioning out of the military, he earned his MBA from Harvard Business School and now works as a senior director at Gap Inc. This experienced leader shares with us the military skills that made him successful.
Can you be motivated by passion? Listen to the inspiring #advice that Veteran Kirsten Harr has for veterans who are transitioning into the civilian workforce. Ask yourself, "What would you do if money were not an issue?"
