Transition Plan of Action

Our Transition Plan of Action, a nine step plan, was created by looking at what topics veterans in the various stages of tranistion search for and what questions they ask most frequently. It connects you to more than 7,000 articles and conversations curated from across the internet by our Military Relations Team and fellow community members.

It covers such topics as:

  • Personal Self Assessment - Identifying what you need from a civilian career
