Don’t wait until you’re 30 days away from separation before starting the military to civilian transition process. ASSESS your options and create an ACTION plan.

The ideal time to begin preparing for military transition is one year before you are available to begin employment in the civilian workforce. Take ADVANTAGE of all the free services that are available (military placement firms, military job boards, military job fairs, TAP/ACAP) and don’t be afraid to network on your own to find a military connection (VFW, former military you know, military associations such as AUSA, MOAA, Marine for Life, etc.).
