For every servicemember, whether you stay two years or enlist for 30 years, you have to leave at some point. The question is: When is the right time to separate?
There are many schools of thought surrounding this:
“If you stay for 10, you might as well do 20”
“Get out after your first enlistment”
“Don’t get out until you’re ready”
For each servicemember, it is a personal decision. Are you getting out of the military to ‘escape’ a bad tour? Do you have a solid gameplan on how you will establish yourself once you are separated?
We have guided hundreds of servicemembers into well-paying civilian assignments -but- we also preach that the US military is one of the few places that you can completely establish yourself with no money down.
There is no right or wrong decision – only options. Send your transition questions to firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured on our ask anyresume section of our blog.
