Description

Transitioning from active duty military to the civilian job market can be a daunting experience, especially if you’ve spent your entire adult life on active duty. In the Vet Coach Transition Tips podcast, join former Navy Lieutenant Pat Bergstresser as he navigates the transition process for military veterans step by step. We’ll talk through resumes, interviews, LinkedIn, and most importantly, if you should grow a beard for your first civilian interview. If you’re still on active duty, a veteran who’s been out for several years, or you just finished Transition GPS/TAPS class and realized it was a complete waste of time, this podcast will help guide you through the process of what to do and how to successfully find a fulfilling career in the civilian world.To access this podcast and more, visit TransitionVetCoach.com.
