Transition from Military Leadership to Business Careers                      – Learn the Tools for Better Understanding of Business –                             Four-Day Career Transitioning Seminars for 2017                            September 25 through 28, 2017  8:00 am until 5:00 pm Commissioned Officers and senior enlisted personnel (E-6 and above) who are transitioning into the private sector are urged to register for the Business 101 Transitioning Seminar to learn the employment skills to succeed in civilian business… a world far different from military culture. In Business 101 you will learn how to succeed in civilian business… its unique language, the modern business culture, contemporary perceptions of military personnel, goals and metrics, job success tools, your new challenges, and civilian business expectations. Our 4-day course helps you understand how your unique military leadership skills translate into civilian business leadership roles. It demonstrates how businesses perceive your marketable skills. It is short on theory and long on practical business applications. This unique business course is NOT a job fair or about resume writing, interviewing or other skills to be learned in TRS and other programs. There is no cost to participate since the course is taught by volunteer senior business executives in appreciation for your sacrifices.   Attire is business casual. Spouses are welcome.  Location is the Crawford Room of the Pacific Views Event Center. Business 101 is a career transition preparation program sponsored by MEA-West and MCCS. It is targeted to help all transitioning or retired career Military Officers and senior enlisted personnel (E6 and above) from all military services to understand what they need to know to succeed in civilian employment. Upon completion of this course that is taught at the graduate-school level, the participant will be familiar with the culture, concepts, expectations, metrics, and terminology of private sector business, leading to your more successful employment interviews and a more satisfying civilian career. Gain Business Career Perspectives and Direction: The cultures of military and civilian business worlds differ from each other in terms of behaviors, expectations, language, manners, metrics, and leadership styles. Consequently every career veteran is challenged when entering the business culture from the military culture. We provide the all-important transitional exposure to the basic issues. Business 101 is a no cost intensive multi-day course to help senior military personnel transition into civilian business careers. The goal is to help senior military leaders to have better job interviews, secure that job, and to be successful in that job. Business 101 provides you with new tools:- Multi-segment courses targeted toward integrating career military personnel into the modern business culture.- Acquaints the career man or woman with the principal language, terms, modern concepts and theories of business management.- Appropriate for all experience levels of senior military personnel, including those with advanced degrees, such as MBA.- The course will be taught in business jargon, not military jargon.
