In the military, you don’t need a resume. You don’t interview for jobs. Your career path is defined.
When we separated from the military, we realized how challenging the transition to a civilian career can be. After reading too many articles about the high unemployment rate among veterans, we pursued an independent study project at Wharton in order to learn why the unemployment rate is so high, what existing programs are available for veterans, and what else can be done to help veterans transition.
Through our research, we uncovered a lot of helpful information for veterans and transitioning service members. We believe that every vet has the ability to reach his or her career aspirations. We created Switch to supports vets in their transition to civilian life and new careers by sharing relevant resources and our experiences.
