Military to Civilian Series

After their service has ended, our veterans must begin the transition to civilian life – often encountering new sets of challenges they’re not well-prepared for. Educational and environmental obstacles beset their path back to a non-military social and cultural position.

But their return to civilian life doesn’t need to be difficult for them to achieve – or for us to help along. We at TheBestSchools.org have created a series of open-use guides designed to help our veterans and servicemembers ease back into civil society. Our guides below cover core developmental areas such as academic and professional application, societal reintegration, and career planning.

Organizing Your KSAs

Transitioning to Civilian Life

Transitioning to a Civilian Job

Moving to a Law Enforcement Role 

Transitioning from Military to College

These resources are available for servicemembers to use at any time, but not all members are aware of their opportunity. 

Please reach out to us with any questions you may have.
