Being a sergeant, I learned leadership skills, how to prioritize assignments, and to deliver a project on time and on or under budget. Break down your day-to-day tasks and see how they apply to the civilian role that interests you.

Senior Staff Administrator, Crop Science, U.S. Air Force - Master Sergeant, Information Manager

Military personnel feel a sense of purpose when they are wearing a uniform, and when that uniform gets tucked away in a closet, we tend to lose that feeling of purpose. I encourage you to get involved in a veterans program or a local charity that you feel passionate about.

"While specific tasks and environments vary greatly from daily work at Bayer, both require agility, investigation, problem solving, and being able to foster relationships with people of diverse backgrounds."
