I’m currently transitioning out of the Army after 7 years as a 25U and am interested in the mental health field. I will have my BS in Family and Human Development come December 2018. I’m open to any and all tips to find that entry level job after being commo for 7 years. Ready, GO!

SGT (Join to see) Make sure that your resume is tailored for the position that you are applying for and use civilian terms to describe your Army duties. Research the company that you will go to work for so that you can explain how you will fit into their organization.

I transitioned in 1972 as a Field Radio Operator, with a goal of working for the Space Program. Knowing that I needed a degree, I applied along with 100 others for two openings at a chemical plant. I had done my research and was well prepared for three interviews along with a battery of tests. I landed the job and worked there while I worked on my degree. Five and a half years later, I had my degree, and applied with the Space Shuttle Program. Again, I was well prepared, and the fact that I had worked at a chemical plant did not matter. Planning and preparation are the keys to a successful career search.


Best of luck. Please keep us posted.

Thank you!! I have a tailored resume as well as a master resume just in case. I think I’ll do a route similar to yours.
