Military transition to civilian employment is a job (project) in itself. Take the time to network and develop relationships with people in the industry or company you are interested. Always thank those you help you. Send a note, email or even better-a card/letter in the mail.
When networking, be sure and be genuine. Think of making a business friend and not just a card with a title. Building long-term business relationships will set off your career in the right direction. Get to know your contacts on a more personal level, if possible. This endeavor is a marathon, not a sprint!
