It has been my personal experience that it is easier to get a start-up to take a chance on you than a larger more established company.

The larger the company the more they rely on education and a track record; the smaller start-ups look for aptitude and dedication.

PO1 Tony Holland, that is a shame. Perhaps that would not be a good place for old hands to look for work.

I think it is very important for you to get into an industry that you are interested in, can grow in, and will make you happy. Most people think aptitude testing is for kids but I also recommend it for transitioning military, I think it would help you find the right field. I know TAP offers a test but this one is much more involved.

"Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there."
~ Will Rodgers

The quote is a bit misleading though... you've got to be going the right direction too.

Sometimes Abe Lincoln said it better:
"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

Join nearly 2 million former and current members of the US military, just like you.
