Your military skills and experience will be invaluable to you in civilian life. But your successful transition won't just happen. You need a network of people who can help you decide where you want to go[md]and then help you get there.

Don’t know how to build that network? No problem: Business Networking for Veterans will help you. Not comfortable drawing attention to yourself? Don't worry: networking is about service, not showing off. And service is something you've already mastered.

Authored by two former U.S. Marines and a world-renowned business consultant, Business Networking for Veterans will teach you everything you need to know to succeed. From start to finish, it focuses on the unique challenges you face as a transitioning veteran[md]and the unique skills and resources you bring to the table.

You've already proven yourself as a leader in service to your country. This book will help you do it as a civilian, too.

·         Why networking is even more important for transitioning veterans

Employers won't just hire you, because they may not understand you

·         How to network well even if you're not comfortable doing it

Not a natural talker? Use your powerful listening skills

·         How to use online social networks to support your in-person networking

Magnify your impact with LinkedIn, Facebook, and other online services

·         Where to start today

A complete plan that starts with the network you already have
