Leaving the service can feel daunting; worrying about finding your first civilian job can be tough. But chances are you already have the skills and experience you need to enter a rewarding career field with good job prospects—learning and development (L&D). From leadership to communication, creative thinking, and conflict resolution, the military has instilled in you competencies that can be used for your first training and development job. We can show you how.
