The Process

Cameron-Brooks guides JMOs through every step of the military transition process to start their business career.

You may be wondering, “Where do I start?” Cameron-Brooks has over 45 years of experience — more than any other military recruiting firms—helping JMOs through their transition. Every step of the process is geared toward your success. Here’s how it works.

1. Attend a “Considering a Business Career? What You Should Know” Webcast or hear it in person during one of our Base Visits near you.

The best way to understand the “big picture” is to attend one of these events. We travel worldwide so check our Base Visit schedule. Either way, you will gain valuable insight to determine if Corporate America is right for you.

2. Then register on our Resource Center so you can fill out a candidate application and schedule a Personal Marketability Assessment (PMA).

This one-on-one session may be done in person or over the phone and helps most JMOs realize how much the Cameron-Brooks Team members want to help them reach their career goals. You’ll get answers and begin to understand how your former military jobs can translate into the Corporate World. (Participating in either a Webcast or attending a Base Visit presentation is required for a Personal Marketability Assessment. In this busy military environment, we can and will make exceptions – please e-mail or call for an alternative solution.)

3. Acceptance

After your PMA, if Cameron-Brooks feels you would be the type of candidate our client companies are looking for and you feel that Cameron-Brooks can help you reach your career goals, you will become an official Cameron-Brooks Candidate and a full partner in our Development and Preparation Program©.

4. Complete the Development and Preparation Program©

All Cameron-Brooks JMO candidates complete this self-paced program that will give you valuable training and preparation for your current military career, business transition and throughout your business career.

Described as a “Mini-MBA” by one of our clients, this program is key to your success and a Cameron-Brooks Team Member will be there every step of the way to assist when needed. It consists of work covering self-evaluation, leadership and skill development, current business concepts/strategies, career fields explanations, interview preparation, podcasts, webcasts, individual and group sessions and more.

There is tremendous value to start our program early. When asked what they would have done differently, the number one comment we get from Cameron Brooks Alumni is “I wish I would have started my preparation earlier.”

5. Pre-Conference Preparation

We will schedule you for a Career Conference that is approximately 40 to 60 days prior to your final day in the military. In the months leading up to your Conference, we will help you prepare your resume and guide you in any final interview coaching. In the weeks leading up to the Conference we will thoroughly match you up with companies that can give you the highest potential for growth and success and meet YOUR interests. We triple check our matching work using our strong grasp on your unique goals, career interests and skill sets.

6. Interview with top companies at our Career Conference

This is not a job fair. This is a meticulously prepared 4 day event that includes 2 days of focused preparation with 2 days of scheduled interviews where Cameron-Brooks will introduce you to companies that best suit your personality, skills and career goals.

7. Post Conference Follow Up

After the conference, you will have our undivided attention and assistance facilitating follow-up interviews and providing you with information to help you make the most informed career decision. We do NOT make the decision for you, but rather help you analyze your career goals to make the decision that will result in your ultimate success.

8. Cameron-Brooks Alumni Status

Once you accept a position with a client company you will officially become a member of the Cameron-Brooks Alumni organization. As many alumni do, you may refer to us for future career advice, Executive and part time MBA referrals and use our Resource Center on an ongoing basis.
