Operations Manager/Supervisor

Many officers accept positions into civilian careers as operations managers or operations supervisors. The roles and responsibilities of a junior military officer are similar in scope to operations managers/supervisors in the civilian world. In most instances within the private sector, promotion and the opportunity to advance is based upon your individual performance as opposed to years of service. This position is typically the best way to learn about a business and has traditionally served as a springboard for advanced roles with more responsibility. The ideal candidate will usually advance within 6 – 18 months.
