Preparation is key when it comes to transitioning from Soldier to civilian, especially when facing unfamiliar territory like the civilian job market. The more tools and resources service members have to pull from, the greater the likelihood of success and for a smoother transition into civilian life.
Community partners play a key role in the transition process by providing tools and resources for Fort Bragg service members as they shift into the next phase of their lives. Patriots Path, a non-profit career coaching and job search training program, offers comprehensive services such as career coaching uniquely tailored for military members.
Patriots Path invites services members, veterans and military spouses to participate in a five day interactive transition workshop that covers career discernment, high level resume writing, interviewing techniques, negotiating offers, career resiliency and networking connections. The workshop will take place from Jan. 29 to Feb. 2 at Fort Bragg. Classes begin at 9 a.m.
According to Noël McCall, Patriots Path Founder and Director, the workshop provides coaching, support and career transition strategies taught by career coaches and executive recruiters that puts Soldiers back in the driver’s seat.
“TAP (Soldier for Life-Transition Assistance Program) is a great jumping off point,” said McCall. “Our programs teaches how to use those tools and it provides real-world feedback on how your information is interpreted by civilian recruiters.”
The workshop registration fee is $25. Service members can register online at https://patriots-path.org. The deadline to register is next Thursday.
