" may be the single most important day you spend as you plan the next step in your career after the military.”

On August 25, a group of 250 service members and military spouses from the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum will fill the halls of The Commons to take the next step in their transition during the Military Transition Seminar (MTS). The day-long course, created-and-delivered by veterans, is in its third year and offers career development coaching free of charge to veterans of all ranks and branches. The Fort Drum MTS coincides with the two day Hiring Our Heroes transition summit, kicking off three days of military transition preparation and civilian career planning. While registration has been closed for the August 25 seminar, veterans can attend one of eight remaining programs in 2015.

Sponsored by USAA, the MTS is a hands-on workshop delivered by Executive Consultants from corporate training and consulting firm, Afterburner Inc. Since December 2013, Afterburner has partnered with sponsors to deliver 12 seminars at eight installations around the United States, working with nearly 1300 veterans and their spouses to create more than 1200 transition and career development plans.

The MTS curriculum is based on Down Range: A Transitioning Veteran’s Career Guide to Life’s Next Phase (2013), a transition guidebook co-authored by Afterburner Founder & CEO, James “Murph” Murphy, and Director of Learning & Development, Retired Navy Cmdr. William M. Duke. Leveraging 18 years of corporate training and consulting and the collective transition experiences of Murphy, Duke and Afterburner’s 50+ veteran team members, Down Range introduces a unique transition perspective and provides a holistic approach for planning and achieving a post-transition career of choice.

“[The Military Transition Seminar was] by far the most insightful 8 hours I have ever had the pleasure of attending,” writes recent MTS participant MAJ (ret.) Joe Kearney. “Anyone that has the time (if not make the time) should attend this seminar...Drive, fly or take a may be the single most important day you spend as you plan the next step in your career after the military.”

Eight more seminars remain on the 2015 MTS schedule, including the program’s first international delivery this October. The Afterburner and USAA teams will travel to four U.S. installations in South Korea the last week of the month, working with troops at USAG Daegu, Camp Humphreys, USAG Casey and USAG Yongsan.
