Founded in 1864 to insure Civil War sailors and soldiers against wartime-related disabilities, "MetLife" has strong roots in veterans' initiatives.
Today we continue to make a difference in the lives of our customers by providing insurance and financial security when they're most needed." We offer employment opportunities to veterans in civilian careers "leveraging military traits and values" that really matter in the work place such as leadership, teamwork, and integrity.

I joined MetLife in June 2015 after 20 years of service in the US Army. Now, I'm able to apply my experience in a technological field and as a leader in my position at MetLife. I am responsible for the strategic development, direction, and implementation of MetLife's video conferencing, collaboration, and streaming media solutions for MetLife Associates."I lead a team responsible for engineering and delivering capabilities that allow our associates to work more efficiently and effectively, which is very rewarding for me.
The skills and traits I developed in the military truly helped my transition, including my self-confidence, agility in new environments and an understanding of the impact my decisions may have on the company. I was able to add value from the first day on the job and inspire the team to achieve and succeed. With MetLife, my opportunities are limitless.
My best advice is to highlight your skills within a greater framework of your military values. You bring a great wealth of knowledge and experience in your area of expertise, but more importantly you adhere to basic core values that carry great weight with employers: you are loyal; you have a sense of duty and obligation to help others and to find solutions; you lead by example; you are honest; you are bold, creative, and you own the results of your actions and decisions--both good and bad. If you can balance your conversations between what you've done and who you are, you will stand out.
