After being in the military for so long, some people just take the first job that they can get. But if they're looking for something more, if they're looking for a career instead of a job, Pipeline offers you everything.
Before Pipeline, I had no idea what I was going to do after transitioning out of the military.
I would definitely recommend Pipeline to other transitioning soldiers or anyone looking for a job.
Pipeline will cause a smoother transition because everything is in one place.
The thing that's really great about what Pipeline is doing is making contact with soldiers 12 months out. I've talked to soldiers who are transitioning out tomorrow; now what are they going to do?
