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 three times per year (Feb, Jul, Oct).
