Matt Warzel Guest Speaker: Lucas Connolly’s RecruitMilitary Live Webcast – Skill Synergy: Matching Talents to Hottest Industries

Check out our President, Matt Warzel, on Lucas Connolly’s RecruitMilitary Live Webcast: Skill Synergy: Matching Talents to Hottest Industries

🇺🇸 I was fortunate to be featured on this episode of RecruitMilitary LIVE with the awesome and talented Lucas Connolly, where we discussed all things skills, backdoor job hunting, and military-to-civilian transition best practices.

My quick tip for military members in transition to civilian employment: deal with this transition by taking a mental break first…then internalize, visualize, and realize. Try to identify your relevance in terms of value to a prospective employer, internalize on what your passions are and some transferable skills and accomplishments to relay to hiring managers, a solid resume and some email communication templates (or cover letter), and a lot of patience and willpower. A good rule of thumb for the job hunter seeking a new role in a new industry is to identify your transferable skills and portray those first on your LinkedIn profile and resume. Reverse engineer your career path from your ideal job’s description and see what you have and what needs up-skilling. Then execute!

Think the long game. Have a vision of your dream job. Think of your job drivers. What’s important to you? Time, money, benefits, 401(k), location, product offerings, company image, culture, values, progressive versus traditional setting, remote versus on-location, passionate project opportunities, etc. Each is different for each person. What motivates you? What’s your passion? What can you do that will make you happy in 2 weeks, 3 months, a year?
