Enlisted Service Members' Transition into the Civilian World of Work: A Cognitive Information Processing Approach
Clemens, Elysia V.; Milsom, Amy S.
Career Development Quarterly, v56 n3 p246-256 Mar 2008
For many enlisted service members in transition, securing new jobs or careers is among their top priorities (B. Litz & S. M. Orsillo, 2004; U.S. Army Garrison Vicenza, n.d.). The complexity of enlisted soldiers' transitions combined with the significant number of 1st-term enlisted soldiers returning to civilian life calls for career counselors to heighten their awareness of the specific needs of enlisted service members' entering or reentering the civilian sector. This article presents cognitive information processing theory as a foundation for working with enlisted military personnel who are transitioning into the civilian world of work.
