Military Separation: What does it mean to you? (Part 1 of 5: Job Change)

Getting ready to separate from the military can be a stressful time for a service member and his/her family. To better serve our military members’ needs, we will be facilitating a discussion series about topics related to military separation beginning today, September 23 through Friday, September 27.


Today’s topic centers on job change. What questions come to mind in relation to military separation as it applies to beginning a civilian career? Do you have certain expectations from the military for helping you transition? Share some of your common questions and thoughts with us!
