I was fortunate to transition from Active Duty into a civil service position directly. Ultimately, utilizing my GI Bill for my undergrad in business management combined with experience in program management from the military set me up for success in the civilian market. Additionally, completing a graduate program in project management and my PMP certification further expanded my capabilities as a project manager. The challenge I found was translating my military experience as a military police officer into a language that expounds on my abilities in leadership and managerial skillsets needed in a civilian organization. There are many inherent skills associated with serving in the military that expand beyond your specific job code.
