This title assists military personnel in preparing for transition to civilian life and conducting a job search. It offers excellent guidance on interviewing, resumes, networking, and more. It provides servicement and women direction on navigating a tough job market and economy. It combines technical advice with the real-world experiences of other returning service personnel. After completing military service, veterans can have a difficult time finding employment upon returning to civilian life. "Out of Uniform" is designed to help all transitioning military personnel, regardless of service, branch, rank, rating, time in service, time in grade, or specialty. Although all service members share many common denominators, each individual brings something unique to the job market. The parameters of the search may vary, but the target is the same - land the right job the first time. The information in this book will enhance the odds of hitting that target. This book is divided into nine sections, covering matters in roughly the same order that they occur in the military-to-civilian transition process. Another useful feature is the Key Word Index, which allows the reader to locate specific information throughout the book, regardless of the part or chapter. In addition to all of the technical guidance, readers will also discover important information in the anecdotes based on actual experiences of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. "Out of Uniform" is an invaluable resource for veterans who want to make the most out of their civilian career opportunities.
