Military veterans prepare for the next mission in their careers
Written by veterans who have successfully made the transition, Down Range offers career planning guidance to U.S. military veterans coming off active duty. This is NOT simply a guide to transitioning from the military to the civilian world. This is NOT a guide to getting a job. This book IS a guide to developing a post-military career, not just for the first few days, weeks, or months after active duty, but for the rest of your employed life.
This simple and effective planning process has been taught to more than 1 million business executives in companies all over the world.
This book challenges veterans to change their mind-set and understand just how different the "wilderness" of civilian employment is from military experience. Down Range provides an appreciation for what's important to a business, helping you to become a valuable asset throughout your career.

Prepare for your next mission―a civilian career.
A veteran's transition from military to civilian life is a major life event that requires careful planning. This career guide for veterans is unique and empowering for two reasons. First, it is written by veterans who made the transition and now lead a successful civilian business which consults with corporations large and small all over the world. Second, it explains a simple and effective planning process that has been taught to over 1 million business leaders, a process born of military experience. This book:
