Transition lecture scheduled for Jan. 9

By Evelyn Knight Airman & Family Readiness Center

The Airman and Family Readiness Center is sponsoring "Marketing Yourself for a Second Career," a once-a-year lecture presented by the Military Officers Association of America. The event will be held at the A&FRC, Bldg. 500 at Joint Base Charleston - Air Base, Jan. 9 from 9 to 11 a.m.

This presentation is designed for service members contemplating retirement in the next one to five years.

The lecture will be given by (retired) U.S.A.F. Col. Brian Anderson, now a deputy director of transition services on MOAA's national staff. The presentation, given annually at more than 150 military installations includes comprehensive information on the retirement decision itself, employer perceptions, your competition, resumes, cover letters, job search, networking, career fairs, interview techniques, salary negotiation, benefits packages, the current job market, and other relevant and important transition topics.

The presentation is geared toward officers and senior enlisted but all ranks and spouses are welcome to attend. Everyone who attends will receive a free copy of the lecture's companion book, also titled "Marketing Yourself for a Second Career". It is an in-depth, all-in-one resource for the transition process.
