This is a group for RallyPoint members who are seeking civilian and private sector employment as they transition out of the military or as veterans in the civilian workforce.
The Discussions held within this group can be used to help other RallyPoint members to learn about best practices for seeking employment, good or bad companies to work for, good or bad industries for veterans and much more.
Use this group as a resource to find the RallyPoint conversations and the members (in the 'People' tab) who will be able to help to give you advice. Similarly, if you have advice to give, then feel free to use this group to mentor those who have questions.
