Military to Civilian Employment: A Career Practitioner’s Guide is an essential resource for understanding the unique challenges and opportunities in supporting veterans to successfully transition to civilian employment. On average 5,000 highly skilled Canadian Armed Forces personnel will exit the military each year but many will require help in finding good jobs after serving their country.

Career coaches, counsellors, HR professionals, hiring managers and others working with ex-military personnel will all benefit from this specialized resource guide. Users of the guide will gain insights into military life and how to translate military experience and training into civilian terms, including “demilitarizing” resumes and matching skills with the right employers. Topics covered include career planning, job search, as well as coping and adaptation strategies. A chapter is also dedicated to the career development needs of military spouses. Helpful lists of services, programs and resources for veterans are included.
