Mission Transition is an essential career-change guide for any transitioning service member 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. This well-written and easy to follow guidebook enables services members to be successful in the next chapter of their careers.
