About

PayPal is an incredibly fast moving company where things change, grow, and evolve constantly. The ability that I gained in the military to quickly and effectively adapt to changing situations has allowed me to stay ahead of that change regardless of the role I am in. Additionally, the ability to mentor others gained through experience as an NCO has helped me to build excellent and successful teams.

Advice

The military instills individuals with a variety of skills that are indispensable in the private sector. Formalized leadership education, stress management, adaptability, and teamwork all have a place regardless of the industry. Foster and develop those skills in addition to your technical proficiencies. Educate yourself on the culture and jargon of the private sector so you can better explain your military skills and experience in a way that is easily understood and relatable.
