Career Transition Coaching

Career Transition Coaching

Transitioning from a first career in Military, Law Enforcement, Government, Federal Agency, etc. with the aspiration of joining the private sector is entirely feasible. 


Approaching this transition with a strategy is critically important.   

Your resume must speak to your new corporate audience in their language, not the language you’re used to from your first career employer.

Do You Know Your Strengths?

At Security Career Coach we are strong believers in “strengths psychology”.  From a career perspective this means that we believe one should align their strengths with professional roles that not only require one’s strengths but roles that will leverage one’s strengths.  Why?

People who work within their strengths perform better, have higher job satisfaction, are more deeply engaged in their work and they carry lower stress levels.

Find the most satisfaction in your new career when you align your strengths with your new employer’s needs.

Ready For the Corporate Culture?

The most important work one can do when transitioning from a first career to a second career is to be sure their personal performance aligns well with their new employer.  It is your interpersonal behavior that will make or break your career transition. Even when you step into your new career role, it is the way you interact with colleagues that will dictate the levels of success you’ll reach.
