Mission Transition: Navigating the Opportunities and Obstacles to Your Post-Military Career
by Matthew J. Louis
Mission Transition is an essential career-change guide for any transitioning veteran that wants to avoid false starts and make optimal career choices following active duty.
Every year, about a quarter of a million veterans leave the military - most of whom are unprepared for the transition. These service members have developed incredible leadership, problem-solving, and practical skills that are underutilized once they reach the civilian world, a detriment to both themselves and society.
Well-intentioned Transition Assistance Programs and other support structures within the armed forces often leave veterans fending for themselves. The mission-first culture of the military results in service members focusing on their active duty roles in the year leading up to their separation, leaving them little time to adequately prepare to join the civilian world.
In Mission Transition, Matthew J. Louis, author and President of Purepost, a next-generation staffing solution and public benefits corporation, guides military personnel through the entire process of making a successful move into civilian professional life:
- Guiding you through the process of discovering what path you want to take going forward
- Teaching you the strategies that will make your résumé stand out
- Providing suggestions to help you prepare for and ace the interview
- Discussing ways to acclimate to your new organization’s culture and pay it forward to other veterans
