Interview with Tom Wolfe, Author of Out of Uniform: Your Guide to a Successful Military-to-Civilian Career Transition
Tom Wolfe’s “Out of Uniform: Your Guide to a Successful Military-to-Civilian Career Transition” is an invaluable resource to help veterans navigate the job market and succeed in their first post-military career. Tom, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate and former Navy Officer turned career coach, wrote Out of Uniform to help all transitioning military personnel, regardless of service, branch, rank, rating, time in service, time in grade, or specialty. The book provides actionable advice for every stage of the transition process, enhanced by anecdotes based on the experiences of other veterans.
Military Recruiting Myth: Working with a Recruiter Will Lower Your Salary
I talked with a transitioning Officer recently and he told me that he had been advised to steer clear of working with a military recruiter. The reason? Because “recruiters are paid a commission that reduces the salary being received by the service member. Working with a Recruiter leads to a lower starting salary.” While I can’t guarantee that this has never happened in the history of recruiting, I think this concern comes from a lack of understanding about how things generally work in the recruiting industry.
