Inside the Lesson
In this episode, Marshall McCloud discusses how members of the military can successfully transition into civilian careers, including:
What is the mission of Hire Heroes?
Hire Heroes is an outreach that helps veterans to develop careers in the civilian workplace. It exists to serve active duty members of the military who are on the cusp of transitioning into civilian careers.
What is the biggest challenge for transitioning members of the military?
The most difficult aspect of launching a civilian career is learning the many ways it differs from a career in the military.
What is the start-to-finish process of Hire Heroes?
From narrowing down career options, to writing a resume, to learning how to interview, to submitting counter-offers, Hire Heroes supports veterans in every aspect of job searching.
How can a spouse support the transition from active duty to a civilian career?
Military spouses tend to be miraculously flexible and supportive. Most of them continue that support into the search for a civilian job.
Are there any additional resources to help transitioning members of the military?
The biggest and most important resource is your network of family, friends, and former/active duty members of the military.
