STORIES FROM SUCCESSFUL TRANSITIONS
When I first came across Service2Software I had no idea the doors it was going to open for me. If you would have told me I was going to work at one of the biggest companies in the world when I first started this transition I wouldn’t have believed it. Being surrounded by transitioning service members going through the exact same thing you are helps a lot. I’ve transformed from a radio equipment maintainer and I'm on way to becoming a thriving sales professional with IBM. None of this could've been without Service 2 Software and the mentors I've established during my transition process.
Taking the leap into the civilian world is something many service members, including myself, are ill prepared to face. Taking part in Service 2 Software gave me the tools I needed to make that transition successful, as well as the support of a group of truly fantastic and talented individuals. I can’t think of a better program to streamline your transition out of the Army.
The key to finding success is to embrace being out of your comfort zone! I did an entire career change at the age of 27. Going from a US Army Engineer to a Business Development Representative was uncomfortable plenty of times from doing cold-calls, mock interviews, learning the industries leading software but this was essential for me to really grow in such a short time. I knew Service 2 Software would change my life but I couldn’t have imagined how quickly it would do so! Utilizing the network, learning from the mentorship, and following the process will have you at your dream job - guaranteed.
