Leadership Development Program

Many high-performing military officers begin their civilian careers by being recruited for leadership development programs. The roles and responsibilities of a junior military officer are similar in scope to management positions in the civilian world. A leadership development program position is one of the best ways to learn about a business and has traditionally served as a building block for advanced roles with more responsibility. The titles of these roles may vary (the specific job in question may not be called “Leadership Development Program” for instance), but the intent is the same, that is, to develop future leaders for a company through a rotational training program.

In most instances within the private sector, promotion and the opportunity to advance is based on your individual performance as opposed to years of service. The ideal candidate will usually advance after 6-24 months of orientation and training.
