Insight from Military Veteran Employees at Southern Research

“During my transition from the U.S.Army to the civilian sector in 2008, I researched several organizations that I felt could utilize the expertise I gained through military service and provide opportunities for growth and advancement. My primary goal was to find an organization with a worthwhile mission in which I could also make an important contribution. Southern Research has uniquely fulfilled all of these criteria, providing an opportunity for me to further my career through contributing to scientific innovation that affects individuals’ daily lives in a positive way. Like the military, Southern Research highly values the people who work for our organization and make us feel as if we are part of a special family.”

I understand that the transition away from full-time military service can be an intimidating process for you and your family. Having been out of the civilian workforce for several years, I was both excited and apprehensive at the thought of starting over again as a civilian. I was eager to begin a new chapter of my life but also very concerned that I would be throwing away all of those years of experience built while in the military. I didn’t just want a new job – I wanted the right job. Also, I was concerned about the long-term stability of potential employers due to weakness in the national economy. However, because of the diversity of research endeavors at Southern Research – as well as the longevity of the company – I felt confident that such an established, successful organization could provide me and my family with long-term stability. The transition to Southern Research has been very smooth and enjoyable. I honestly didn’t expect to find a civilian organization that cares so much about its employees. I am very pleased to be a part of the long history of success at Southern Research and encourage you to find out more about us.
