Building connections advice.


Riley Jarrett Minot Afb, ND

I’m currently transitioning and looking to build those connections. I started a little late when it came to building connections so now I’m hitting the ground running. Im looking to get into project management using my experience and working toward my BA in project management as well as being green belt certified and possibly PMP certification. Any advice on building those connections or where to build them? Thanks!

There might be opportunities for you to use the Skill-bridge Program.
I've added links to information & videos under this section of my EE webpage:

For networking, you can get one FREE year of LinkedIn Premium as a veteran.
You might want to delay that until you are close to being done with school & the Military.

For Project Management:

Hello there!
I am currently working through a bachelor's in applied management through GCU which is an accredited online school. They are super pro military and will work with your military transcripts to get you the best possible deal if you are still looking for a school to earn your BA. I am working at Northrop Grumman (defense contractors basically) if you are interested in looking at going into a career that has a lot of prior service members already working there.
