Begin to qualify your capabilities and what you want to accomplish with a transition. JMO recruiters have self assessments or questionnaires to fill out that are intended to facilitate this process, but it is important that you put some serious thought and consideration into this prior to downloading a recruitment application. 1 Be honest with yourself… Strengths/weaknesses and flexibility of geographical locations, etc. You don’t want to find yourself in a role you wish you hadn’t taken only because you said sales in the southeast sounded great, but in reality you are an introvert with an aversion to heat. 2 Some general questions to ask yourself and topics to research and understand when considering a Military Officer Transition: - What are your strengths and weaknesses? (Communication, organizational skills, detail oriented, understanding of the industries, etc) - What kind of industry/company do you want to work for? (Do you want to work for a small start-up company, a large conglomerate or an international company) - What type of job do you think would excite you and you would be good for? (Do you want to be in sales or perhaps marketing? Does design work better suit you? Jump around this site to get a feel for some of the functional professions out there and feel free to ask questions in each category) - Do you have a preference for geographical location? (Note, many recruiters will recommend that you stay open on location, but that doesn’t mean you can’t communicate your willingness to relocate but with a ranked preference for locations.)
