Michael,
Your LinkedIn profile is sending the wrong message. First your picture needs to be you in professional attire. Secondly come up with a TAG line about your career and a brief value statement about your value. You already follow Michael Quinn, sign up for some of his networking on line events. Conduct some Informational Interviews-learn about your career with other IT folks. Remember that you are part of the 0.5% of Americans who serve their country. You are very well respected, but the chance civilians have been part of the 0.5% simply means they will not understand your language or experiences-without translation. Thank you for your support and sacrifices. God Bless https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/come-prepared-transition-process-gap-between-civilian-jerry-welsh/

Hi Mitchell! To help with your search, you might want to check out our Community tab above. You can search under Advisors for professionals in the Wisconsin area with IT experience and reach out to them with questions! You can also connect with other veterans who have similar career interests to build your network.

Hi there. There is a national organization called Team RWB that you should check out if it is in your area. There are fortune 500 companies that sponsor/work with them and it is a great place to meet other veterans in your area.
