Bradley-Morris answers questions from transitioning military job seekers.
Q: I’ve been working on my transition plan and trying to zero in on companies that I think are a good fit for me. A friend says that I shouldn’t ignore a job if it’s a good fit just because I don’t like a particular company or industry.
