Great post. One of the things I found in transition was a lack of a purpose greater then self, and a focus on profit motive - profit at any cost to include one's ethics. The third issue was a lack of recognition of abilities - most military members accomplish more than most civilians, building confidence and self-assurance. That may not be reconginzed civilian employers which is disappointing in general. Just my humble opinion.

This story rings very true with me. My current job is the only one I've held for over a year since I got out. I left my other positions for a variety of reasons. I got terminated, company lost its contract so all employees got laid off, I resigned for a better position. I think I'm also a bit acclimated to doing things the military way; changing (PCS'ing) every now and again!

Plus some of these jobs just weren't a good fit for me. I probably would have left all of them even if I hadn't lost the job(s) someway or another. My last job was easy and steady, but it wasn't very challenging and it didn't pay that well. It was demanding so I kept busy but it wasn't very mentally challenging.
