Career Couch column provides advice for transitioning military job seekers
Atlanta, Georgia, December 21, 2008 – Bradley-Morris, Inc. (BMI), the leading military recruiting firm in the U.S., was recently featured in The New York Times’ Career Couch column (click here for full article). The article, “From the Armed Forces to the Work Force”, discussed career advice for transitioning military and veterans on topics such as translating military skills to civilian job titles, working with a military recruiting firm, online job boards dedicated to veterans, and interviewing tips.
Craig Griffin, principal and senior vice president of operations at BMI, was interviewed for the column and provided advice on an issue that many transitioning military face – translating military training to a civilian job. Griffin commented on the question: ‘Do you need to look for jobs that are closely related to the kinds of work that you did in the military?’ Griffin advised that with a civilian job search “keep an open mind and think of your skills – aircraft repair, electronics, project management – rather than your military job title.”
Because of BMI’s role as a military recruiting firm, Griffin has expanding on this advice for former-military job seekers, compiling a list of the Top Ten Tips for a Successful Military to Civilian Transition in Corporate America.
The Career Couch features a question-and-answer format regarding job seekers’ most pressing issues. “From the Armed Forces to the Work Force” addressed the common questions that many transitioning military face when considering a civilian career search.
