What did you find to be the most rewarding part of transiting to the workforce?
Being able to continue to serve and give back as well as continuing to be a part of a team.
How has your military experience helped you in the workforce?
In the military scenarios/situations can change at the drop of a hat and in the military we always had to be willing to adapt to any situation that arose. My military experience also has given me discipline and the drive to complete tasks and most importantly to never give up.
What advice would you give someone getting ready to transition?
Trust the team around you; go to them because they are here for you. Also, seek those who have also served as they are a vital resource in that transition. Finally, your service has given you valuable tools that will serve you greatly in the workforce.
