Branch: U.S. Navy
About: I spent time in the Navy learning signals and communication as it related to military intelligence had several opportunities to go to sea, completing one 6-month deployment to the Mediterranean and Adriatic seas aboard the USS Saipan.
Advice: With help from the G.I Bill, earning my bachelor’s degree and MBA gave me the foundation to build a career. I would also say that anyone transitioning out of the armed forces should network as much as you can and always list your status as a veteran. You never know when there will be someone like me on the other side of the hiring desk who also happens to be a veteran and knows what high level of skills you bring with you to the workforce.
Branch: Air Force / Army National Guard
About: I served time in both the Air Force and the Army National Guard. After working for a few companies, I was fortunate to eventually join the Oncology Supply team in 2009 as a Warehouse Packer. A little over a year later, I was promoted to Inventory Control Clerk I.
Advice: Computer skills are a basic necessity in today’s work force. Research companies in the area you plan to live in once you leave the military then decide how you want to move forward in your career. Work hard, do what's right and always represent your company in a manner that will make others ask how they can become a part of the team. Dream big and love what you do.
Career takeaways: My service years taught me how to be a true team player. The military gave me structure. I work hard and I appreciate every opportunity given to me in order for me to succeed and advance.
