Employment Prep Course

Starts February 14, 2022
After a course introduction, learn how to leverage various technologies to best organize and prepare for post-military employment. You also learn about your most valuable resource—people—and how each group plays a critical role in your employment search and decision making.
You may not be aware of it but you are your own biggest obstacle to your future employment success. In week two, we use our proprietary cognitive neuroscience-based modeling to teach you about unproductive and misaligned thoughts in your head that become barriers to your success and how to overcome them.
With your internal unknowns identified and addressed, you’ll learn about the significant differences between the public and private sectors and how that affects the hiring process. In addition, knowing what the private sector’s needs and wants are will help you articulate your value to their profit-making enterprise.
With your internal and external obstacles addressed, you’re ready to begin our iterative employment prep process. In this week, with new tools in hand, you’ll begin finding the industry, company, and role meeting your requirements. With each supported iteration, your confidence will grow and your opportunities will soar!
As you know, no plan survives first contact. Same goes for employment preparation. That is why we programmed in another full week of supported training so you can begin perfecting the process. And, once you have the process down, you can continue this process as much as you like on your own or with your peers in the PreVeteran Alumni Community once you complete the course.
Two things. One—we know your busy. Two—we know that you need to get military transition right the first time. That is why we built this 5-week virtual hybrid course that can fit into your busy life. The course consists of weekly videos you can watch on your desktop, laptop, or mobile, 1:1 support, interaction with your cohort, and assignments.
You should expect to spend a manageable 3-4 hours per week on the course, at the time that's convenient for you, no matter your location.
No! If you haven't read our articles on the website, we frequently talk about how the government's Transition Assistance Program (TAP) has essentially influenced an errant thought process that may entice you to think that your preparation should be done around the 12 month mark.
Step back and ask yourself a simple question. Does this make sense?
A successful military transition requires a self-transformation on your part. The more time you have, the better! To use an aviation metaphor, why wouldn't you use the longest runway possible? By waiting until you're within 12 months means you've denied yourself a full runway. Don't do that!
For best results, we recommend you start this Employment Prep Course between 1-3 years before separation or retirement.
While certainly not ideal, we can get you on the road to post-military employment success in this period of time. However, as we mention in the question above, your successful military transition requires you to self-transform. Being so close to your separation or retirement date, you have a lot going on—which means it can be challenging to prioritize self-transformation. That being said, we've had students with very short timelines who've been very successful, so it can be done.
As we mentioned above, for the very best results, we recommend you take the Employment Prep Course 1-3 years before you separate or retire from the military. For an added level of detail, we recommend you take this course when you've got a good handle on your job and a good balance at home as well so you can find time to devote to this course and your personal transformation.
When not to take the course. Are you getting ready to PCS, expecting a baby, just changed jobs, or are getting ready to start your undergrad or Master's degree? If yes, this might not be the best time or you can wait and take one of our future planned courses. Starting in 2022, we'll be holding the Employment Prep Course quarterly.
Absolutely! If we don't deliver on our promise below, you'll get 100% of your money back—no questions asked.
Our promise—we will:
Provide you a roadmap to start and continue your self-transformation process
Help you become more aligned to the private sector's needs and wants
Help you know what industry, company(ies), and job(s) best fit your requirements
Provide you a model to continue iterating the process to continue refining your results
