About

The structure and worth ethic I gained while in the military greatly helped in my transitioning into civilian life at PayPal. Throughout my career at PayPal, I have used the drive, which the military equipped me with, to push through all obstacles within my position. I strive to be better and work harder because that’s what I learned through my years in the military. I began my career at PayPal, coming straight from the military into an entry-level position in Fraud Operations; through hard work, I have moved through the ranks to my current position as a Compliance Analyst.

Advice

No matter whether you are about to complete a 4-year tour or are a 20-year retiring vet, you will need a plan to transition into the private sector. Start looking into jobs that may fit your expertise at least a year out, and document the knowledge you may lack that you can pick up in a class or two. The job market is hard and there are many qualified applicants, so start applying for positions prior to your last day in the military. Once you are in the door, using your military mentality to do your best, along with teamwork and focus, will align you to be able to move quickly through the ranks.
