Focus on these things to succeed in Transitioned Military Officer

Request six and twelve month reviews!


In the military you are reviewed formally every few months.  This constant feedback is not very typical in the civilian work environment.  Talk with your manager about your desire to be reviewed on a more structured basis.  Even if this is not a formal process submitted to Human Resources, request a regular, informal sit down to discuss goals, results and receive constructive criticism.  Also talk about ongoing training opportunities.  You can research training programs right here on ManagingAmericans.com.
