Finding a Job: Stress Reduction Through Preparation with Ranger Up

There are all sorts of stresses that our readers have, and it’s just not limited to PTSD. One of the most daunting prospects anyone faces when transitioning from the military to civilian is how to earn your living.

The job search can be an overwhelming and stressful time for anyone looking for a job. Ranger Up CEO Nick Palmisciano does a great job in a four part series for veterans in search of employment: from the approach to the interview.

Jobs: Tai Chi Instructor Opening, Camp Pendleton

Closing date: October 26. Please see the link below for details.

This came up on USA JOBS, the portal for civilian employment in the armed forces. It’s for a PART TIME position, which is important to remember because the salary below is quoted for a full time position. So the pay is half of what you see listed. They’re forced to list it this way –remember, it’s a government job and there are all sorts of requirements. Ditto that for the interview. You’ll be asked lots of questions that seem weird considering it’s a TaiChi/Wellness job. But you’ll be asked how you get along with others, how to describe a situation where things weren’t working out –standard government weirdness questions.

Anyway, what makes this job special is it’s funded through Navy Medicine –rather than a contracted job for a teacher through the Fitness Centers. This is a bold step in the right direction, and we applaud their decision to take this move. Recently, they hired their first part time yoga instructor to work with the Department of Alternative Medicine, which is associated with the hospital. Tai Chi and Yoga are wonderful adjunct therapies to nourish mind, body, spirit.

Opening, Hope & Care Center, Camp Pendleton. Click for more info.

 We’re guessing it might be to work with wounded warriors through the hospital. Camp Pendleton recently opened its new Hope and Care Center. Read about it here.  Please do ample research on their wounded warrior regiment, the hospital. Plus, some soul searching is recommended. Decide whether or not you want to work with this population. The Marines uphold and deeply abide by their values of  Honor, Courage, Commitment. They don’t sign up for the Marines, they become Marines.  The same is expected of anyone working with them. This is a point that Jillian, Dave and I can’t stress enough.
