As Wounded Warriors transition to jobs in the civilian sector, they pick up pieces of advice and guidance that can be passed on to others who may be facing similar situations.
Jake Dobberke is one such wounded warrior.
Take time to decide which employer traits are most important to you. When Dobberke worked with the Marine Officer Recruiter from Bradley-Morris, some potential jobs were not in his desired Midwest location, but they met his other criteria for employers.
“I still did the interviews and tried to see if the other things I was looking for matched up with their business. So I didn’t just focus on geography. I asked myself whether they had the other values and the position I wanted to do,” he says.
