The Marine Corps Air Station Yuma Career Resource Management Center has sponsored a once-a-year lecture regarding transition that is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 10 from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Sonoran Pueblo Club. Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), and is entitled “Marketing Yourself for a Second Career”. The event will be held on Monday, December 10, 2012, at 0800-1030 at The Sonoran Pueblo Club.
This top-shelf presentation by the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), entitled, “Marketing Yourself for a Second Career,” is a great professional development opportunity. Because transition is a part of all military careers, this lecture is perfect for those who are contemplating retirement in one to five years. However, it doesn’t stop there. Regardless of whether any particular officer or senior enlisted member has reached the point of being in their own transition, they should be educated about the process in order to mentor and counsel those who work for them and are contemplating or going through their transitions. This “executive summary” presentation can prepare them for that role as well as many multi-day programs. Simply stated, it’s a great fit for any commander, officer, or senior enlisted supervisor — from the most senior, to the most junior.
Colonel Dan Koslov, USAF (Ret), deputy director of transition services on MOAA’s national staff, will lead the presentation which is given annually at over 150 military installations of all Services worldwide and is universally praised by audiences as, “up-to-date, hard-hitting, and sharply focused- a must see.” It includes comprehensive information on the retirement decision itself, employer perceptions, your competition, resumes, cover letters, job search, networking, career fairs, interview techniques, salary negotiation, benefits packages, the current job market, and other relevant and important transition topics.
The presentation is geared toward officers and senior enlisted, but those of all ranks are warmly welcomed. SPOUSES are highly encouraged to attend as well! All who attend will receive a free copy of the lecture’s companion book, also titled, “Marketing Yourself for a Second Career.” It is an in-depth, all-in-one resource for the transition process.
