Effects of a Career Change

Changing careers is a stressful undertaking, perhaps even more so for those leaving military service after many years on active duty. Transition stress can impact on your future success and your family's quality of life. Understanding stress and coping with it are essential skills you'll need to get through this difficult time. Include all of your family members in the transition decision-making process because you will be facing changes in employment status, lifestyle, location and schools. If this transition is causing you and your family stress, you may seek help from Army Community Service (ACS), the Chaplain's office, mental health facilities, the local Veterans’ Affairs office or local support groups and even the self-help section of your nearest library or bookstore.
