Planning and Executing My Transition to Corporate America from Japan

In 2012, I accepted two year shore duty orders to Sasebo, Japan knowing that I would eventually transition off active duty after my tour.  I started planning my transition one year from end of service.  I  decided to work with Cameron-Brooks, a headhunter who works particularly with junior military officers (JMO) .   Here's who I managed my transition what I did:

  • Worked with a military specific transition service
  • Used checklists
  • Used LinkedIn with free one year premium service (read how here)
  • Used Google Hangouts to perform practice interviews with other transitioning member in Japan & US
  • Read military to civilian transition books
  • Read business and career books
  • Attend DOD transition workshop
  • Attained a mentor
  • Learned from others who transitioned via blogs, articles, and conversation

You can and will be successful.  Put your plan into action!
