Happen To Your Career - Meaningful Work, Career Change, & Career Design

Transitioning out of the military is no easy task. From the rollercoaster of emotions to the lifestyle changes, and of course, finding a civilian job. Julia had loved her time in the military, but that chapter had come to a close and she needed to figure out what her next career would be. When she began her job search, she felt completely out of her element, struggled to relate her military experience to civilian job postings, and found herself considering jobs well below her military pay. In this episode, you'll hear how Julia went from not knowing what she wanted to do next to landing an amazing role in the corporate world and defining her ideal life as a civilian.
