Your military experience – and certainly your military achievements – will aid you in your corporate journey. But is there a secret to succeeding? And can you expect to just do a lateral move from the responsibilities you had in the military to corporate?


Our guest on The Military Wire is Brian Jenkins. Considered a national HR leader, Brian graduated from Cornell and Pepperdine, has worked at some top tier companies like HP and Texas Instruments, and his HR experience ranges from large (HP, 350K employees) and medium (TI, 30K employees) companies to the small (WageWorks, 2k employees) and emerging companies.

There aren’t many issues Brian hasn’t faced or experienced in his HR people management experience.  He’s supported businesses through growth and difficult/reducing phases, including issues around change management.

And what he’s recognized through all his experience is the value Veterans bring – as well as some of the common hang-ups to Veterans succeeding.

In this episode, you’ll hear Brian share how Veterans can leverage their experience and knowledge to truly succeed in corporate.
