McKinsey & Company | May 29, 2017
believe there are two types of military veterans – those who know how valuable their experience is and those who have no clue. Prior to McKinsey, I was part of the latter group. It took putting myself out there (e.g., on LinkedIn and in networking events) to get my career to take flight. Recruiters liked the leadership experience, teamwork, and problem-solving ability I had from my time in service. Initially, I thought these skills were common, but there are many companies searching for people with these qualities – and McKinsey is at the top of that list.
