Career Transition Services

The Career Transition Network is a volunteer organization of over 200 former officers in the metro-Atlanta area. It is sponsored by the West Point Society of Atlanta and supported by the U. S. Naval Academy Alumni Association Atlanta. The Network's mission is to help officers during their military-to-civilian career transition and the job search process. This help comes in the form of job search information and techniques, career advice, industry information, job leads, and moral support.

Membership is open primarily to service academy graduates, but also to other current or former military officers, regardless of service or source of commission. Officers either completing their service careers or looking for a new job opportunity are welcome.
