The purpose of this book is to increase career practitioners’ awareness of the transition issues and resources specific to veterans and to provide several examples of how a practitioner might walk a veteran through the career planning process. Case studies based on interviews with real veterans by the authors and military consultants are used throughout the chapters to demonstrate the thoughts and feelings involved, as well as career practitioner strategies for helping the individual make a career decision.
