Where Do I Go From Here?
This is a great book for service members transitioning to civilian life. I really like the resouce directory in the back. It has website links to information for veterans, their spouses and families, links to job sites, veterans assistance for starting a business and sources for financial help. It also includes a very helpful personal budget worksheet. Definitely worth a read.
Such a Great Resource!
I love the content in this book! It would be of good use for any of the service men and women coming home from overseas. Since there are not many other books like this one, and plus since this one is FREE, I fully recommend this book! Be sure to check out the 7 Tips for Nailing the Job Interview!
