Bringing best-in-class transition seminars to the military community highlights our commitment to making life easier for those who sacrifice so much to protect our freedom and preserve our way of life.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) March 04, 2016
Randolph Air Force Base is the next stop for the USAA-sponsored Military Transition Seminar (MTS), a career planning seminar for exiting service members and their spouses. Open to all rank and branches, the Randolph program will be hosted at the Military Plaza in Building 5 from 0700-1700.
The MTS is developed and delivered by veteran-owned-and-operated training firm, Afterburner, Inc® and sponsored by USAA. Since 2014, Afterburner and USAA have delivered 22 seminars across 15 installations, resulting in nearly 2000 transition plans created by more than 2200 service members and spouses. The partnership demonstrates both organizations’ commitment to empowering veterans with the tools and resources that drive a successful transition.
“Transitioning from the military to civilian life can put a strain on military members and their families,” said Renee Sokolowski, assistant vice president of Military Transition / Innovation at USAA. “Bringing best-in-class transition seminars to the military community highlights our commitment to making life easier for those who sacrifice so much to protect our freedom and preserve our way of life.”
The day-long seminar is part of a larger initiative to provide comprehensive military transition training, empowering veterans with the knowledge and skills to think and act more strategically, and doing so well in advance of separation or retirement dates.
During the seminar, service members and spouses are trained to identify key elements of their desired post-military future and the key areas of impact that will make that future a reality. Participants are then able to leverage this learning throughout the transition process to establish a gratifying career of their choice.
These transition plans lend strategic direction to the tactical preparation efforts that round out the MTS curriculum. Participants are trained in critical job search skills, online and offline networking, interview preparation and how to leverage the full support of their networks along the way. The result of which is a class of service members who understand how to use their skill sets and expertise as catalysts to success in their civilian careers.
The MTS seminar is based on the career transition guide, Down Range (2013), co-authored by former USAF F-15 Instructor Pilot and Afterburner Founder & CEO, Jim “Murph” Murphy, and retired U.S. Navy Cmdr. and Afterburner Director of Learning & Development, William Duke.
Written from the first-hand transition experiences of the Afterburner team’s former fighter pilots, Navy SEALs and other Special Operators, Down Range equips exiting service members with the Situational Awareness to accurately communicate the value of their service experience and individual areas of expertise. Each participant receives a copy of Down Range and additional career planning resources to maintain progress long after they participate in the course.
