Transitioning to life after you finish military service is all about planning ahead of time and knowing what you want to do when you are done. Failure to take these steps will put you in a tough situation from which it can be difficult to emerge. Thankfully, the military helps prepare you well for jobs like operational management, and many universities give you tuition assistance for military personnel to finish your training.
After I graduated from high school, I went straight to college, even though I was very unsure of what career field I wanted to enter. I completed my four years and earned a degree that helped me secure a job relatively quickly. However, I soon learned that the career I chose was unfulfilling for me, but the thought of going back to learn something new just seemed too overwhelming. I wanted to enter the field of healthcare, and one day I got a flyer in the mail from a local nursing school that offered certificate programs that only took a year to complete. I felt like it was "fate," and I was soon enrolled in evening classes. I really like helping others, so I want to help others make good educational decisions. I plan to post tips for people of all ages on my new education blog!
