    Unfortunate that your website addresses senior military leaders and not one mention of the highest enlisted rank. Disappointing to say the least. But then I see the MOAA connection and it’s crystal clear it’s still all about the O even in the civilian world. I am aghast as I have 30 years as a senior military leader coming out of being a MAJCOM command chief as I soon retire. Have a graduate degree under my belt and looking for resources as I make that move to real world and see that there is virtually no assistance available.

      Edward, thanks for your note. Congratulations on your upcoming retirement and kudos to you on your graduate degree. Your advanced degree will stand you in good stead in this competitive marketplace.

      Much of the advice on our site, in terms of using social media in your job search, mental and physical wellbeing, balancing work/life priorities, as well as adapting to different cultures in the civilian workforce, has been provided with both senior enlisted and senior officers in mind. Also, I encourage you to take the time to look at some of our previous posts and you will find interviews with the Master Chief Petty Officer of the U.S. Coast Guard as well as senior enlisted from the U.S. Air Force. We will continue to include interviews with other senior enlisted retirees in the months ahead.

      Thanks again for your note and best of luck in your upcoming transition.
