Have an Answer?
Tough question because I don't know what you did in the military. You question should have weight and substance, as you deserve an answer that can position you for success. Are any of your talents transferable to the private sector ? Airline maintenance ? Security ? Logistics ? What did you do, what have you learned, what are your interests going forward ?
I would ask the question like this:
I've been in the military for 5 years. I was an information technology specialist. How can I use these skills and enter the work force?
Or something similar.....
Good luck and thank you for your service.
