You will leave your current job. Depending on the source, approximately 200,000 military members leave the service annually, through separation or retirement. In Air Force Safety alone, 45-50 Airmen move on to new careers every year. If you’ve attended TAP (Transition Assistance Program), you may have found the material quite generic, especially if you wish to continue a career in EHS.
In an effort to help military members desiring civilian careers in EHS, I’m working on a transition guide with questions and answers, advice from recruiters and veteran EHS professionals, suggested timelines, and a description of various niches in EHS.
Would you be able to help?
If you’re transitioning in the next 1-4 years, what questions do you have?
If you’ve transitioned, what advice would you give?
If you hire EHS professionals, would you mind answering a few questions?
Send a note with your questions, advice, and feedback to josh@connectingEHS.com. I’d love to get your ideas!
If I include your thoughts, I’d like to send you an advance copy of the transition guide, be sure to let me know if this would be alright!
