New Book by Veterans Business Advocate Michael I. Kaplan
Military veterans transitioning into the civilian workforce are facing a wide range of unique challenges when completing their service. Veterans will need to possess unique skill sets well beyond those currently discussed within mainstream hiring circles in order to successfully transition into the civilian workforce.
Michael I. Kaplan, a veteran and an entrepreneur with 25-years of experience creating business ventures, has revealed his proven strategies for participants in all phases of the employment process: veterans, corporate recruiters, members of veteran support organizations (VSO’s) and advocacy groups.
Preparing military veterans to seek employment is critical, but it’s only the first step in a complex process with many equally important components.
Once hired, the veteran candidate must be successfully retained and developed over the long-term. Kaplan’s process of self-assessment, prioritization and conducting an effective inventory of skills speaks directly to this issue.
While this thought-provoking book puts particular emphasis on entrepreneurship, Kaplan argues convincingly that the skills and mindset needed to be a successful “Vetrepreneur” are identical to those required to secure and maintain civilian employment.
This book benefits ALL veterans regardless of career path. Military veterans are uniquely qualified to be successful in the civilian workforce. Michael I. Kaplan’s book, “The Prior-Service Entrepreneur,” will provide military veterans – and those organizations that support them – with a distinct competitive advantage in their pursuit of realizing that success.
