A Transition from Naval Officer to Store Team Leader

Having served on active duty for almost 11 years, I was not used to having to interview or look for a job.  When the time came for me to transition from the military to the civilian sector, it was certainly a jump into the abyss.  The military does a great job teaching you leadership, discipline and working as a unit; however, when it came to job searching and putting together a resume, I was lost.  While on active duty, it’s easy to take for granted all the benefits the military provides to you and your family, but when it’s time to transition out, there is a bit of hesitation going into unknown territory.

I had my aha moment in the second half of my Target career.  I was […]
