Military Retiree Second Career

Are you a veteran looking for a career or a transitioning military member beginning your job search? Finding the right job can be an intimidating task. Consider using MOAA as a resource. MOAA stands for the Military Officers Association of America.

MOAA offers The Officer Placement Service (TOPS) to its members. TOPS provides a broad range of assistance for members and their spouses during career transitions. When you're ready to take that next step, make TOPS your first stop.

Remember, civilian companies are looking for highly trained professionals with well developed leadership skills. Search for progressive companies who are committed to recruiting retired military members because of your strong work ethics, skills and training.
