Suggested Reading List for Military Transitioning to a Civilian Career

Recommended Books for JMOs, NCOs and Enlisted Technicians
Preparing for a Transition into the Civilian Workforce

Over the years we’ve seen a significant difference in the success rates of military job seekers who have invested the time to read professional books and materials as they prepared for their transition versus those who choose not to. Whether you are leaving the service in two weeks or two years, reading professional literature will enhance your knowledge of Corporate America and ensure you are as prepared as possible for an interview.

The investment you make now will pay dividends when you interview. You will be more comfortable in an interview setting and will be able to better articulate your background and professional experience to an interviewer. Be careful not to inundate yourself with literature to the point where you are simply reading books without retaining the knowledge. It’s better to pick a few books and concentrate on understanding, learning, and applying the material.
Transition Topics
Interview Preparation
Leadership and Management
Manufacturing and Engineering
