Episode 6: Helping Veterans | Interview with Matthew J. Louis, Author of Mission Transition| 7 Eagle


Mission Transition is a practical career-change guide for transitioning veterans avoid false starts and make optimal career choices following service.

Every year, about 200,000 veterans leave the military, most of whom are grossly unprepared for life after service.
While well intentioned, Transition Assistance Programs and other support structures within the armed forces often leave veterans fending for themselves. On top of this, veterans themselves are typically so focused on their active duty roles that they’re unprepared to join the civilian world.

Mission Transition guides military personnel through the entire process of making a successful move into civilian professional life. The process starts with foundational ideas, like understanding who you are and who you want to be. Readers will then explore strategies to make their résumés stand out, effectively network, ace the interview, and negotiate an optimal compensation package. Finally, Mission Transition discusses ways to acclimate to the new culture and pay it forward to other veterans. Each chapter includes advice from other veterans, illustrations of key concepts, summaries, and suggested resources.
