  • How to Get Respect from Civilians the Easy Way

    Do You See Nonmilitary People as the Enemy?

    3 minutes to read

    Parsha [Passage of Scripture] Nugget [Precious Idea] Devarim – Deuteronomy 1:1-3:22 Some veterans tell me civilians hate them. When somebody thanks them for their service it’s a lie. Private sector companies don't care about hiring veterans. It’s hard to argue the point. Some civilians despise the military and people who served in it. I don't know the people a veteran has met. Maybe they do hate service members. How to Get Respect from Civilians the Easy Way

    Do Civilians Really Hate Service Members?

    I couldn’t find a study that quantifies the percentage of Americans who hate the military. I read posts on Quora ( an example ) and Yahoo Answers ( another example ) that discuss this issue. Some of the language is crude. But those who expressed negative attitudes rarely directed them at service members. Have you ever had to tell Read More

    The Secret to Professional Development in the Private Sector…

    2 minutes to read

    Advancement in the military was a straightforward process. You knew the career markers: schools, qualifications, exams, and key billets. Some jobs had less upward mobility. Usually, that was because they didn’t need more people in the senior ranks. But where opportunity existed, for the most part, you were on equal footing with everyone else. If only the private sector worked the same way. How to Make Sure You’re Satisfied with Your Job

    The Obscure Process of Career Advancement

    Compared to the military, civilian organizations have a mysterious path to promotion. Often the criteria for advancing aren’t clear. You may not even know who can promote you. Coming from the military’s up or out atmosphere, it’s frustrating for your future prospects to be so cloudy. Besides, private sector organizations and the military are competitive in different ways.

  • How to Take Advantage of Not Fitting in

    Employers Value What Makes You Feel Uncomfortable

    2-½ minutes to read

    Parsha [Passage of Scripture] Nugget [Precious Idea] Pinchas Mattos-Masei – Numbers 30:2-36:13 Transitioning to civilian life can seem like walking in a barren wilderness. Few of the familiar touch-points of daily life exist. Nobody asks you to verify your identity to access your workplace or computer. You don’t hear the recording of the Star Spangled Banner each morning. Lack of a muster might even make you feel nostalgic. At least it seemed like someone cared if you showed up for work. How to Take Advantage of Not Fitting in

    How You Benefitted from Rootlessness

    When I first left active duty, I found civilian life devoid of meaning. Part of it stemmed from my working from home and being alone much of my workday. In the military, you're never by yourself. There’s always someone to meet with or check Read More

    Do You Know Why Job-Hunting Is Like Basketball?

    Basketball. What’s the first thing you do when you want to play? Do you put your shoes on? Get a ball? I’ll admit basketball isn't my favorite sport. One on the rare occasions I tried to join a game, I played left out. But I imagine it’s pretty boring shooting at the air. Confused? I’ll explain. How to Ensure Your Job-Hunt Fails Before It Begins

    Make Sure You Know the Point of the Game

    Before anything else, you need a basket to shoot at. You can perform passing drills. And you may practice dribbling using your fingertips. My dad said it gives better ball control. Talk about dull. I’d train for about five minutes and then sneak away to do something else. Training is pointless unless it’s preparation to play the game. And the game is pointless Read More
