Veterans Career Match

My Next MoveOn My Next Move for Veterans (www.MyNextMove.org/vets) veterans will find a simple and quick search engine where they enter their prior military experience (branch of service and military occupation code or title) and link to the information they need to explore information on civilian careers and related training, including information they can use to write resumes that highlight related civilian skills. In addition, My Next Move for Veterans contains a link to an online assessment, the O*NET Interest Profiler, which provides results comparable to the Strong Interest Inventory being used in the new Transition Assistance Program (TAP). Veterans who have not received an interest assessment as part of TAP can access and take this interest assessment online from a link in the lower right-hand corner of My Next Move for Veterans or directly at: http://www.mynextmove.org/explore/ip

I spent this Veterans' Day visiting Berlin, Germany. After seeing the ruins of the Berlin Wall and the Holocaust Memorial I was reminded of the importance of the work that we've done in the past and that future veterans will do to protect freedom. Thank you all for your service, past, present, and future.

I hung up my uniform 20 years ago and have worked in a half dozen different areas since then.  I think a lot of service personnel look at their exit and think - What am I going to do with the rest of my life?  In reality I think the question should be - What am I going to do next?  It's a much easier question to answer.  I think this is a topic you may want to explore.  People need to be able to take that first step through the door without thinking about the next 20 years.

I spend most of my time consulting for government agencies, but I'm shifting more of my focus to coaching.  I have a 100 day program for entrepreneurs to build/rebuild their business platform to figure out the correct offline/online mix for their business model.  It's a combination of consulting and coaching to address both business and technology challenges.  So I'm definitely interested in growing.

The VA is not important to me from a services perspective, but I would love to work with them to fix their service model - they need help.  Would love to know more about Veteran affinity programs - it's always good to connect.

As far as moving the group forward, I'm happy to help any Veteran with a free call or review of their website to come up with a basic plan to take that first step and move your life or business forward.

Hello all! I am preparing the group discussion plan for 2017 and need your help. What topics are you interested in? Are you looking for work, starting a business, or growing your coaching service? Is the VA important to you? What about Veteran affinity programs? I'm looking forward to your ideas on the best way to move our group forward.

Hey Gang- love to see what this group is doing. Thank you all for your service!! Occasionally I run across things within the 48days.net community that are nice to share in other groups. If you are someone who is starting a side business or full time business, you may want to check out Donna Reade's blog around starting a business plan HERE as I think you will find it useful.

Thanks Lee! This is a new class. I am curious to see the response to it.  As you know from our last conversation, I recently positioned myself as a local private reading tutor for children ages 10-15. While I was marketing that program, three adults asked me could I tutor them on Grammar. They were older adults. They wanted the privacy, so they would not be embarrassed. By the way, two were already in school, and the third was starting in three weeks. My thoughts - short on time - need it now - privacy - online class.

Thanks for the update Ericka! I just checked out the class on Udemy and it looks great. Congrats on your transition and creating a terrific product.

Hi Everyone,

Our group leader Lee is dedicated to providing information to help us transition from military to civilian life as smoothly as possible. We know that going to college may be part of the process. I used the VA stipend to complete my degree after I retired. I knew college would be a challenge because my writing skills were not the best. Prior to attending, I enrolled in a Community School’s Grammar class and that helped. I understand that all cities do not offer a Grammar class and sometimes we need help right now! So, I decided to put together an online Writing Crash Course on Udemy. It is a fast-paced one hour class that shares the formula I used in college.

It is not a free class, but I will offer the 48Days Veteran members a 50% discount.  If you can relate to my story then I look forward to seeing you in the class.

Ericka

I wanted to put in a plug today for two great podcasts that I've recently started listening to. Ryan Guina's "The Military Wallet" and Tim Ferris' podcast are great. Ryan's productions might have tapered off as of late, but the content is first rate. Tim Ferris, of "The Four Hour Workweek" fame has more than 170 episodes available, and while some of the coarse language will remind you of your deployment days, the guests and themes are incredible. So, after you've finished listening to Dan Miller's podcast, consider these others to add to your personal education content.
