If you are about to leave the military, chances are you have thought of seeking your next career in the federal government. Why? Well, there are many reasons. The federal government values military experience, as many of the jobs are similar to work performed by military personnel. It's a natural transition for military personnel to apply for their counterpart civilian job in the federal government.
It is not unusual for a military member or veteran to be hired as a civilian for the same job or similar position once held while on Active Duty. Many of the skills and duties involved in military positions are directly transferable to civilian government jobs with DHS, FEMA, DoD, VA, TSA, DLA, FBI, CIA, and many other agencies and organizations. Many federal agencies also value the training and certifications gained in the military, not to mention those who possess and hold an active security clearance.
Experience can substitute for college degrees in many mid- and senior-level government positions. Private-sector jobs often require a minimum four-year degree for mid- to senior-level positions, but the federal government recognizes that military experience can often provide invaluable real-world experience. A military member or veteran without a degree can often enter the government workforce at a higher level than in the private sector. With the federal government, you are less likely to start at the bottom and "work your way up."
Military veteran candidates are often eligible for special preference over non-veterans when applying for a government job. In some cases, even the spouses of veterans who were separated under honorable conditions can receive Veterans' Preference. New federal hiring initiatives have been established by President Obama in 2011 to ensure veterans have preference in landing federal jobs.
