New Book Combat Leader to Corporate Leader Addresses Veteran Employment Effectiveness


Combat Leader to Corporate Leader: 20 Lessons to Advance Your Civilian Career describes how veterans can beat the challenges of unemployment, under employment, and capture the full value of their military experience in their careers.

Military veterans joining and re-joining the workforce face a wide array of challenges: rising veteran unemployment, a lack of business familiarity, and a deep desire to have a civilian career as rewarding as their military career. Military veteran unemployment for ages 18-24 is running 50% to 100% higher than their civilian counterparts.
The new book Combat Leader to Corporate Leader: 20 Lessons to Advance Your Civilian Career tells veterans immediate, effective, and proven steps how to fully leverage their military experience in business.
