Even though I had been retired from the Navy for almost six years, the title of Tom Wolfe's book, Out of Uniform was intriguing enough to get me to buy it. I'm glad I did! In fact, it is a book I wish I'd had access to when I left my uniform wearing days behind me because it would have changed a few things in my professional life. Tom addresses all that is involved in transitioning from military to the private sector employment from what the "new uniform" is to resume preparation and from interview preparation to questions to ask the interviewer and most importantly, why each is so important. The book addresses far more than just the mechanics of what to say and do, it also addresses the mental processes involved and a wonderful chapter on self-discovery that is far from what the term may invoke in a professional military person. Mr. Wolfe also addresses the various types of interviews that, while I've see some discussed nowhere else, I've experienced them all first-hand and had wondered if I'd handled them OK (I hadn't) but this book gives you the insight to succeed. It also covers the most important questions to ask at each phase of the hiring process and how to shift from job seeker to sought-after employee. This is the "go to" book for any military person looking to find employment in the private sector and I cannot recommend it highly enough to convey its true worth. This book also has value to anyone seeking to move their career beyond where it is now even if you have never worn a uniform. It is truly that good! Buy this book and get the edge you need!
