Jay Drake spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy. When he retired, he found it difficult to make the transition to the civilian work world.
Drake was hardly noticed as a job candidate by hiring managers, landing only two phone screens and no-face-to face-interviews. "This was surprising to me considering I was bringing more than 17 years of experience in human resources, business management, and financial administration from the military, which I was sure would translate well in the private sector," Drake says.
So, he enlisted the help of a professional to find an encore career.
