Work ethic, leadership, and project management skills are the skill sets and values that I received in the military that have been the most beneficial to me at Southwest Research Institute.

– A. Steiner (US Navy)

The best advice I can give to someone that will be separating from the military and looking for employment is to find a way to translate your skills from military to civilian life. Be ready to get some retraining to make sure your skill set is relevant to modern expectations.

– T. Alger (US Army)

Southwest Research Institute provided assistance in moving from the military to the civilian workforce by placing me in a positive environment, with wonderful coworkers!

Military Recruiting
