A truly military view of the civilian job market!
This Page is specifically published for military personnel transitioning to civilian employment.
The civilian world is a Target Rich Environment for job seekers
The old joke is that what some folks call being surrounded Marines call a target rich environment (TRE). When you are transitioning from the military into the civilian world you are surrounded with job opportunities. With everything the military has trained you to do, the civilian world is truly a TRE for you.
When you are looking for a job, the most important first step is to get your well-written resume into the hands of a hiring manager who can allow you to interview for the job you want. In military terms, the hiring manager is your target and your resume is your bomb.
In general, when it comes to hitting the target, you have two approaches.
