When I transitioned from active duty, I was a well connected Memphis native who was an academy grad and had an MBA. I had 70 interviews and I could not get an offer for two reasons. First, the Memphis market does not understand a military career. Second, I did not know how to translate my skillset to the market.
From then on, I have made it one of my goals to bridge the military-civilian gap between Memphis and Millington by using my personal network to help place transitioning sailors in the Memphis area. This service is free.
Fill out the career interest form, and I’ll see if I can open doors for you to talk with local business owners who can help out your transition.
