As a Marine, I am accustomed to a fast-paced environment that poses many personal goal-oriented challenges and a constantly changing routine, to which I adapted to eagerly. So, when it came time for me to make the transition from a military career to a civilian career, a new set of challenges emerged that I wasn’t quite prepared for.
Many of the jobs I found after leaving the military simply did not offer the same level of engagement that I came to rely on to be satisfied in my career. That’s why it was so important for me to search for a career with a company that would not only utilize the fierce drive to succeed that was instilled in me during my military career, but that also would offer me the opportunity to stretch beyond the limits of my current job description.
Luckily, I did my research and found the TMX Finance® Family of Companies. Honestly, there are not very many MOSs (Military Occupation Codes) that can give you the specific skill set needed for the finance industry; however, that was not an issue when I joined the TMX family. I was hired because of my strong work ethic, my high-performance level, and for the strategic thinking skills I brought with me from my military career. From day one, I was given all the tools I needed to not only succeed in my new position, but to gain the skills I would need to advance to the next level.
As a veteran, this Company has been a great place for me to grow and excel. They have matched my military skills to my current position and provided all the additional training and development I needed to help me adapt to my new career path. I’m proud to be part of the TMX family!
