  • “PCS to Corporate America was instrumental in preparing me for the “life-cycle transition” and transformation from the military to corporate life. Roger’s transparent guidance allowed me to wrap my mind around the entire process, enabled me to prepare effectively for every stage, and set me up to execute with excellence throughout my journey from initial interviews, to early transition to corporate life, and throughout my 26 years in the business world. A must-read for those who desire a successful transition and “fast start” in the corporate world.”
    Emory E. Zimmer, Director, Strategic Program Management, Procter & Gamble
  • “Eight years post-transition, I still keep my copy of PCS to Corporate America on my bookshelf right next to my desk. It served as a guide during my transition and still serves me well today. Whether I’m looking to prepare myself for the next step in my corporate growth or wanting to help an employee understand some time-tested principles, PCS to Corporate America is a key resource for me in my professional library.”
    Michael DeBock, Executive Director of Gas Infrastructure, NextEra Energy Resources
  • “For those who have served our country in war time, you are so far beyond where I was when I left the USAF as a captain. I am incredibly impressed by the maturity and professionalism of those who have served in today’s military. What you’ve done and who you are will be incredible assets for your future success. PCS and the Cameron-Brooks team will help you effectively prepare for success in your new life.”
    Stephen Morse, Vice President & General Manager, Japan Rhythm Management, Boston Scientific Corporation
  • “I read PCS to Corporate America four times from cover to cover, and my wife also read it. Because of this, we were in the right mind-set every step of the way: making the decision to separate, choosing the right recruiter, perfecting my resume, practicing for interviews, completing the reading list, buying the right suits, interviewing initially and in follow-ups, and finally accepting and declining offers. Even five years later, I continue to benefit from the advice, readings, and mind-set gained from PCS and the Cameron-Brooks experience.”
    Alex Svetlev, Supply Planning Manager, Whirlpool Corporation
  • “I have known Roger Cameron for over 20 years as both a candidate and recruiter. All junior military officers planning on pursuing a career in Corporate America would be wise to read PCS to Corporate America and apply the lessons Roger so ably distills in this book. PCS is the “10” every JMO should study and apply to maximize their interviewing skills. In fact, it is excellent reading for anyone who wants to interview at their best. As a hiring authority, I have personally interviewed several hundred candidates over the years. I am no longer surprised by the poor interviewing skills exhibited by many candidates, but those who read PCS and partner with Cameron-Brooks are always extremely well prepared.”
