My mentorship with Bryan over the past year has been a sheer pleasure. He is eager to learn and is passionate about taking a strong step into the next phase of his career. I have been impressed by his motivation and courage throughout the overall process, as transitioning out of the military can be an intimidating task. Bryan has approached his transition in a methodical manner, and leveraged this mentorship as a key component to his success.
The focus of our conversations centered on his interest in product management, the critical skills necessary to do well in the function, and helping to assess the pros and cons of what it looks like across various industries and companies. Throughout our mentorship, we had multiple robust conversations, both in-person and over the phone, and Bryan’s dedication to this mentorship has been great. Bryan received and accepted an offer at a Fortune 500 company, and his new team is lucky to be receiving such a well-rounded leader.
It’s encouraging to see bright and dedicated veterans like Bryan successfully transition out of the military. It reinforces the value that veterans add to organizations across the private sector, and I’m thankful I had the opportunity to work with him.
