Are you ever curious how other military members have made the transition from a military to civilian career? If you’ve visited the USBA Military Jobs Center, you may have noticed USBA partners with Orion International to help veterans in their job searches. Orion is the country’s largest military placement agency and has helped over 25,000 veterans find new careers in thousands of top companies. Orion resources and job placement services are 100% free of charge to transitioners and veterans of the armed forces.
For example, check out Orion’s Transition Corner that offers advice from Orion alums. Take a few minutes to read the stories of Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, National Guard and Reservists who’ve been in your boots and successfully made the move to civilian careers.
You can search for military job seeker success stories by branch, pay grade, location, industry and job title. You may be surprised by where your MOS can take you. The list of possibilities is impressive.
Wherever you land after you leave the service, you’ll want to make sure you have adequate life insurance to protect your family. Remember, your SGLI ends 120 days after you separate from the military. Now is a good time to start planning for how you’ll replace it. You don’t want a gap in your protection. USBA stands ready to help you find affordable life insurance. You can do it all online. Or call one of our Product Specialists at (877) 297-9235 for personalized assistance.
