If you decide to look for work after retirement, be sure to use the resources that are available to you as a retired service member. Networking is often key to any job search so don’t be afraid to call upon the many relationships and friendships you may have formed while in the military. Also, take advantage of the job placement programs that the military provides. Finally, be aware that many employers particularly value the character, and dedication to service of ex-service members.
Before you start sending out your resume, double-check it to ensure that it is error-free. Have someone read through it for grammar and spelling. Your resume is often your best chance to make a good impression on an employer.
