Industry-Based Approach

One of the toughest steps to take on your career path is also one of the first: choosing your industry. Many industries are more than military-friendly—they are military-ready. A military-ready industry has 1) in-demand career opportunities, 2) companies actively recruiting veterans and their families, and 3) military jobs that directly translate into civilian careers. Choose an industry below and start exploring.
