139: "Your resume isn't focused on where you've been. It's focused on where you're going." Reinventing yourself for post-military life with Lori Norris
Did you know that the military experience has many transferable skills to the private sector? Military transition resume expert and host of the Lessons Learned for Vets Podcast Lori Norris recognizes that service members are rarely taught to market themselves. Since 2005, she has volunteered at the Luke Air Force Base to provide job search education and resume building to veterans. She shares when is the best time for service members to plan for post-military life, how to speak the civilian language, what she considers to be a better word for 'transition,' and much more.
