#168 – John Lehmann – Sr Dir Veteran Services – Intellectual Point

John discusses how Veterans pivoting to Cyber can be successful with some guidance. He shares what he does to help veterans pivot and skill up to jobs in the cyber field. John expresses what is so important about finding the right culture, that is a fit for your core goals, and how it leads to satisfaction. Asking questions is one of the most important things to get their core values out of people in order to put them in with the right recruiter and right company fit. Companies would rather invest more in someone to retain them, and promote within, versus doing external searches. John shares some of the major hurdles veterans face in the job market. Stress the importance of owning your space, and find a company that matches that. 67% of veterans will leave their first job out of the military because of poor leadership at those companies.
