Military Friendly Employers Share Career Top Tips

The first OA Employment Symposium of 2017 brought together leading military friendly employers and industry experts keen to share their insight with those currently in transition, or seeking a further career change since leaving the Armed Forces.

Hosted at York’s Network Rail Training Centre, this year’s event kicked off with a dedicated LinkedIn workshop to demonstrate how the social media platform is now essential for Service leavers in supporting their transition and next career move. This was followed by a senior officers session, which gave advice and guidance to high-ranking transitioning officers on finding suitable civilian management roles.

Colin Tweedie, Networking Consultant, demonstrated how to become a confident face-to-face networker able to start a conversation, understand what questions to ask and how to turn the discussion into a long-term careers opportunity.

Breakout sessions followed where attendees chose from a range of sessions hosted by industry experts, who examined common career paths for Service leavers and included Operations; Project Management; Risk Management; NHS and SMEs.
