I've just begun my transitional steps from the military and will be retiring early next year. I'm also a few semesters away from finishing my MBA from UNC Kenan-Flagler. As I've progressed through the program I've narrowed my two choices to Operations or Finance. However, I believe that Operations may be more of a fit with my military background.
You may wish to look into Informational Interviewing. There are some good templates one line for requesting career advice, with an initial opening of transitioning service member seeking some career help or advice. You also want to keep time frame down to 15 minutes or so, time is huge in business today. If they go over, your gain, many are fearful of long drawn out questionnaire. Key will be to stay away from seeking job or those types of question. You are sincerely seeking information, not the job yet. Thanks for your service and God Bless.
