Cameron-Brooks is the Expert in Helping JMOs Prepare for the Transition

I often hear from Junior Military Officers (JMOs) considering a transition to business that that they just do not have time to think about or research this decision.  Many that have made the decision tell me they just don’t have the time to prepare for the transition. I hear lots of reasons for this.  Such as:

  • I am too busy
  • I have to focus on my mission
  • I need to take care of my team
  • I have an upcoming training exercise

When I ask them the when they plan to make time for this, they tell me when their life or military work slows down.  I have been partnering with JMOs for over 15 years, and I can tell you right now, it WILL NOT slow down.  It might slow down right before you start terminal leave but that it too late!

In addition to the “finding time to prepare” problem, the other problem is that there is just a massive amount of information out there about interviewing and business career opportunities. It can be overwhelming and confusing.

At Cameron-Brooks, we assist JMOs with balancing their preparation and research with their military career.  We have numerous resources to include our Learning Library in the Resource Center, in person conversations with experienced business professionals, interaction with our alumni and other resources such as educational webcasts.   We help our JMO candidates develop skills to find more time, achieve mission-oriented success, take better care of their team and put all these together to have a powerful career.

Our client companies want us to work with junior officers and help them with their careers.  The Cameron-Brooks Development and Preparation Program©(DPP©) (for those accepted into our program) is designed to improve your military career through leadership development, self analysis, a quality reading program, and applying relatable business concepts to your military responsibilities.  Whether you eventually decide to stay in the military or transition out to business, DPP© and our other resources will benefit you.

Cameron-Brooks is not the biggest JMO recruiting firm, but we are the oldest and most experienced with over 45 years in the business.  This experience allows us to help our candidates navigate their careers and, if they decide to make a transition to business, find the best careers in this market.  You’ll hear others say that you do not need to worry about preparation.  Does that really make sense?  Or is it because they don’t have the time, desire or experience to help you?  We are willing to invest the effort to help you with your career.  Hundreds of officers are already benefiting from this program.
