Lol, this seems a little personal, I know I did a number of these, I still struggle with a couple 13 years later. Always room to grow, and these lessons don't every get less important no matter how long we are on the veteran side.

Great article and some good advice. I found it important to keep in mind that the person interviewing (unless they have disclosed to you that they have a military background) really can not relate to situations and attitudes from a "military perspective". The hard part for us is to find a way to convey those skills and qualities that we acquired while in service, but to do so in a way that matches up to civilian skills and attributes. If it feels like a difficult task- find someone (or a few people) that you trust and PRACTICE on them! Find a mentor/friend/fellow Veteran that can be the interviewer and can give you candid feedback. Mock interview and practice responding and interacting in a way that connects to the "civilian" in the room. It can make a difference in the responses, but also help you be better prepared and far more relaxed during the interview.
