PRESIDIO OF MONTEREY, Calif. - Retired Navy Capt. Brian W. Blanchfield will present "Marketing Yourself for a Second Career" on Thursday, April 15, 2010, 2:30 to 5:00 p.m., at the Presidio Post Theater, bldg 208.
This program has been presented all over the world and is held annually at more than 100 U.S. military installations. It is highly suggested for personnel with three years or less to separation or retirement.
It certainly may benefit anyone who is even five years from leaving the military. This presentation is intended for all officers and those NCOs who are considering a transition from military service. Spouses of active duty members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Blanchfield will discuss job competition, transition planning, resumes, salary negotiation, networking, and interviewing.
All attendees will receive a free copy of "Marketing Yourself for a Second Career", a newly revised 75-page book published by the Military Officers Association of America.
Blanchfield served in the Navy Supply Corps for over thirty years, serving aboard four ships and at numerous stateside and overseas locations. In his final military assignment, he served on the faculty at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces at Ft. McNair. While in this position he mentored and counseled personnel in many matters--to include transitions out of the service.
His own transition into the civilian community was a one-year process. Upon retirement, Blanchfield joined Lockheed Martin as a senior program manager. After working for this defense contractor for almost three years he accepted a position with the MOAA. In this role he has done extensive research, writing and lecturing about issues that affect military members and their own transition to the civilian work force.
This presentation is offered as part of the Directorate of Human Resources, Military Personnel Division, Transition Assistance Program. For more information, call Mr. Fernando Casao at 831-242-5976.
