    EP31: The Four Buckets of Transitioning Veterans.

    EP31: The Four Buckets of Transitioning Veterans.

    VETERANS - This is how hiring managers in Corporate America view you.

    Former Navy SEAL delivers speech to a group of HR professionals on how to evaluate and recognize the different "buckets" of veterans. He cites the difference between skills and abilities and how veterans can bring their unique experience to the table.

    A must listen for veterans who are trying to represent their worth and for hiring managers trying to evaluate the veteran candidates.

    You can watch the full interview HERE

    Bucket 1 - This person is fresh out of the military with no college degree and will generally use a GI bill to gain their undergrad degree This individual already has more maturity than the average 23 year old.

    Bucket 2 - Young officers, 6-10 years in military with under grad degree or might have an MBA. This individual will already have a unique skill set.

    Bucket 3 - 20-25 year military career, gets out around 40 yrs old, has more unique experiences to offer.

    Bucket 4 - These are usually retired admirals and generals, board member level.

    Abilities can  transfer out of the military into civilian careers. Not all skills obtained in the military will transfer out. This is why ability is more important. This can determine if an individual can think for themselves.

    What makes a good leader? Being selfless, humility, humble, confidence in oneself, understanding and realizing the experiences one went through and how they handle things when challenged with hard stuff.

    Don't Fear failure and "Never Stop Working The Problem".

    Jaime Chapman owns a Military Spouse Staffing Agency and is the Co-Founder of the United States Military Spouse Chamber of Commerce (https://milspousechamber.org/)

    In this episode of The David Johnson Show, Jaime breaks down the impact of military spouses putting their careers on hold. The military spouse demographic is drastically underemployed with one in four military spouses being unemployed. Jaime tells the truth about being a military spouse and what a day in the life of a military spouse looks like. Since the military spouse unemployment rate is so high, Jaime also details the many aspects of military spouses taking their career from freelancing to military spouse entrepreneurship - military spouse professional development and military spouse education being just some of them.

    In this military podcast, we learn that one in three military families move every year. In the five years, Jaime has been married to her Active Duty husband, they have lived in four homes, two states, and a different country.  This is one reason why a military wife has a difficult time growing and maintaining a steady career.  This is why over half of military spouses turn to self-employment sometime during their “career.”

    The Military Spouse Chamber of Commerce (MSCC) is one resource for freelance or entrepreneur military spouses. MSCC has a proprietary certification process that can allow your business to be officially labeled as a “Military Spouse Owned Business” - in turn allowing the business owner to engage in different programs, receive benefits and participate in supplier diversity options the Chamber brings to the table. It’s a true military spouse support system.

    With flowing enthusiasm, Keith Caraway shares how he joined the U.S. Army in 1999 and was sent to Germany. He returned to the U.S. in December 2001, spent some time in the army’s Corporal Recruiting Program program, and soon began gaining multiple deployments, including Special Operations. Eventually, Keith spent all of his 20s in Afghanistan. Keith also shares the challenges of transitioning to civilian life.

    David & Keith also talk about the drive of being part of the military family, the pride and power when you hear “HOOAH”, the beloved battle cry of the Army. (The phrase ‘Hooah’ is said to have originated in WWII, when soldiers replied to orders from commanding officers with the short word “HUA”, which was an acronym for ‘heard, understood, acknowledged”.)

    “Keith’s had a cool military career, and I wanted to share his experiences with our viewers to kick off the new series,” said David Johnson.”Knowing Keith the way I do, I’m sure you’ll feel his passion and excitement, which really comes across in this interview.”
