I joined State Street just over 20 years ago while continuing to serve in the Army National Guard. As I enter into my 27th year of military service, I find myself able to balance the demands of my career at State Street and those of my military service. What I have always found uniquely valuable is how flexible and accommodating my supervisors have been over the years with respect to my military service. Through multiple prolonged combat deployments and dozens of CONUS leave commitments and my State Street management team has remained supportive through it all. There are many parallels between strategic leadership and skills acquired as a military leader. The ability to focus on strategic initiatives and accomplish goals despite the challenges or obstacles in your way is something that is not unique to the military profession; however the military generates and refines these traits in Soldiers of all levels, regardless of rank or occupational specialty. In my opinion, the ability to maintain composure during periods of high-stress and focus on delivery of the product is something that is highly valuable in this operational environment.

The military brand resonates well with employers. When they see military on the resume, employers believe they are getting someone responsible, clean cut, able to take orders, able to lead, punctual, physically fit, mentally agile, and capable of operating well under pressure. Use this to your advantage and apply for jobs where you may not have the technical skills, but can leverage these skills to learn on the job and succeed. The skills you've developed in the military will set you apart from your non-military peers.

The company I work for (State Street) provides financial services to asset managers (investment firms) and asset owners (pension funds, insurance companies). It is my job to provide financial insights to the business teams who are providing those services to our clients. My clients are those internal business teams. I help them set their budgets for the year and track their performance to budget. I prepare financial statements and help translate those financials into meaningful insights and guidance for my business partners.

About

I work for a small company called State Street Corporation. I started as an Associate 1 (Think Private) in 2012 after losing my job from a small software consulting firm where I worked for 4 years. I have worked in the Fund Accounting space with daily pricing of mutual funds. Then a year later I was recruited and promoted internally as an Associate 2 to a Private Equity Fund Administration team. I was brought over when the team had a very high profile client and State Street's business with them was about to double in the next year. I stayed on that team for about 5 years and was promoted 2 more times. Currently I am an Assistant Vice President on a new team that works with Relationship Managers to find new business opportunities with many of the clients that State Street currently has across all business sectors. My role is to do a deep dive into the client's profile looking for opportunities and short falls where we can help improve not only our bottom line but the clients.

When I'm meeting other veterans; especially those that are just starting out their career in the private sector I always talk about the same 4 topics.
(1) Network: Not much different than when I was in the military but success is very much a combination of who you know and what you know. I believe that service members are hardworking and dedicated, so I tell them “No one is going to give you that next opportunity if they do not know who you are.�? Many times I get a response of “I'm just not that social�? or “I'm not comfy walking around shaking hands and stuff, it feels creepy like I'm doing sales.�? My response is that you don't have to do anything you don't want to for yourself but take a different approach. During the events, look at it as “how can I help this person?�? It's even easier when you're networking with other veterans. We always want to help our brother and sister in arms. (2) Use all the benefits you earned from service: The GI Bill, VocRehab, Yellow Ribbon Program, Post 911, and Veteran discounts are all things you earned so use them push yourself further with less cost. It's money left on the table and you earned those benefits. Use them all up and push yourself past your peers with less debt. (3) Grass is always greener: The grass is always greener on the other side is a very common saying. I prefer to alter that a bit with “The grass is greener where you water it.�? You are planting those seeds to get your career moving in the best direction possible. A positive attitude, motivation, networking, and utilizing your benefits will be the nutrients to your seed that will keep that career on the right path. (4) Network: a. As I have said before, “No one will give you that next opportunity if they don't know who you are.�? I always remind people this is the one of the cheapest and best tool you have at your disposal.
