PMI Supports Military, Veterans and their Families
The project management profession is an ideal career for military veterans transitioning into the civilian workforce. Your skills are directly transferable to the project management profession. Leading cross-functional teams to ensure accomplishment of mission objectives (strategic leadership skill), managing budgets and scheduling activities (technical skills), and conflict mediation and performance appraisal (soft skills), are all key proficiencies military veterans and project managers share.
You already have experience in “operationalizing” projects. Additionally, your strong “warrior ethos”— the mission is always first, never accept defeat, never quit, and never leave a fallen comrade — is appealing and can lead to organizational success.
Overall, many military veterans have the personal and performance competencies to succeed as a certified project manager. With your experience and a PMI credential, you can distinguish yourself to potential employers and open doors to new opportunities.
