Must-listen for transitioning service members!

I believe every service member could benefit from listening to these incredible podcasts.

These podcasts provide a unique and valuable look into the various career paths other transitioning service members have taken. This insight can better-arm future transitioning personnel with the information they need to understand what really is out there and how to best prepare for it!

I wish these had been available decades ago; I can’t imagine how many transitions would have been positively impacted had information like this been available!
