From Soldier to Civilian

The process of transitioning back into mainstream America after being in the military can be quite challenging on many levels.  The job skills learned in the military are useful in a civilian job but unfortunately not all human resources professionals can visualize how that works.  The job market is different than the career learned in battle.  Thankfully there is government funding for training for a new career after military life. 

At Brooke Training we appreciate our service men and women for their protection of our country.  As a VA approved training program we have had the privilege of helping many disabled vets train for a career in transportation as a freight broker at no cost to them.   

According to an article by Sergeant Major John L. Horton, U.S. Marine Corps (retired) on Military.com it takes an average of 3 to 9 months or 1 month for every $10,000 in salary sought.  He suggests working at least 30 to 40 hours a week on your career search, including preparing for your new career.  

One of the recurring words that many of our Freight Broker Training graduates say is how the training prepared them for much more than just being a freight broker.  

We welcome anyone interested in learning how to join the transportation industry to our course.  But even if after taking our course you decide to take your career a different direction, you will have gained valuable information useful in any profession. The skills you will learn will energize you towards a new career.

Like to join a course or have questions?  Browse our site and/or give me a call 214-206-1169.  I have decades of experience in the transportation industry and would enjoy talking with you.

Moving forward,  

Jeff Roach
