The leap from a military career to a civilian career can feel huge.

But you’ve got the training, the skills and experience on your side.

You value teamwork, integrity, respect and excellence. Your resilience, risk management, and critical thinking skills are in high demand.

Our employer partners are seeking to attract top talent like you. Let us connect you.


We’re here to provide end-to-end career transition planning and implementation. We’ve partnered with specialist talent consultants to offer free career navigation, job seeking and training services.
