About
Tim

As a Senior Global Lifecycle Consultant, I focus on the sustainment of our radio networks. I educate customers on what their long-term needs will be and help them plan for their future. At the same time, I share customer feedback with our product and services teams so they can continuously improve our offerings and develop new solutions that raise the bar. Having a military background has definitely helped me in the civilian world. It gave me a leg up when I began looking for jobs. Throughout my career with Motorola Solutions, I've met with military personnel in several countries, and knowing the military's hierarchy and service branches has been helpful. At work I often reference a mantra from the military: Improvise, Adapt, Overcome. Sometimes things don't go the way you'd like them to go, but the military equipped me with the skills and experience to persevere. Motorola Solutions has a Veterans Business Council for veteran employees and anyone else that wants to get involved. This group actively works to recognize and support veteran employees. Less than 10 percent of the U.S. adult population are veterans, but our company stands behind them.

's Advice

The best advice I have for transitioning service members is to be a self-starter. In the military I grew accustomed to taking orders. Then when I joined the corporate world, I quickly realized that no one was going to manage my time but me. Also, don't be afraid to stand out from the crowd � take an extra course or volunteer for assignments outside your comfort zone. It's these experiences that will help you grow.

About
Floyd

As National Sales Manager for Federal Civilian Accounts, I sell radio systems to our federal division accounts, such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Throughout my career with Motorola, I've worked with major military installations, the Department of Defense (DOD) and within the federal division. Understanding the military mindset and equipment the military uses has been extremely helpful. In fact, I was familiar with Motorola's tactical radios before I ever joined the company because we used them in our aviation helicopter squadron. Motorola Solutions takes time to recognize their veteran employees through their Veterans Business Council and events throughout the year. As an example, each year at our National Sales Meeting, the leadership team asks veteran employees to stand for applause. It's a great honor and incredibly humbling to have an auditorium of your peers showing their support.

About
Joseph

As a Senior Regional Service Sales Manager, I focus on the service and lifecycle needs of
our customers to keep their radio systems working for mission-critical communications. Having a military background has helped me in every step of my career. When I transitioned out of the Navy, my training landed me a great job with career potential. As my career progressed, I used my G.I. Bill to go back to college. One of my ships had the mantra “Beyond the Call,�? and that's how I treat my career. If something needs to be completed or if a team member needs help, raise your hand and put yourself out there. You might learn a new skill, and you will be recognized for your efforts.
Motorola Solutions is an excellent place to work when you are a veteran. Our Veterans Business Council promotes hiring veterans, recognizing veteran employees and giving back to the veteran community. We even have a podcast that's shared company-wide dedicated to sharing the unique stories of veteran employees.

's Advice

My advice for transitioning service members is to understand that your military experience is highly valued by companies. Many of the skills you've learned cannot be matched in the civilian world. Put yourself out there, and be confident in the person that you have become by serving your country.
