Fifth Third Bank is providing all active-duty United States military and veterans and their spouses access to NextJob’s online Job Seeker Toolkit.*

Get Started

Joe Sherrer, Retired Colonel, US Air Force

If it weren’t for Kathy Malone, my NextJob military transition coach, I would not be where I am today. After deciding to retire after a 24-year Air Force career, I wanted to create a ‘soft landing’ for myself and my family while also balancing my responsibilities as a Colonel and cyberspace operations wing commander.

Frankly, except for sports, I was skeptical of any kind of coaching, but Kathy quickly dispelled my misgivings. She opened my eyes to opportunities I would not otherwise have seen. As a result, I set to work building a post-Air Force life around who I was, what I was good at and the contribution I wanted to make. Today I own my own executive coaching firm and help small businesses grow by increasing their ‘return on leadership.’ 

I highly recommend this outstanding opportunity to all veterans out there: take advantage of this coaching scholarship from Fifth Third Bank and Kathy’s team at NextJob. It’s a powerful way to help you create the career—and the life—you want after you leave military service.”

Even though I sent 50+ resumes out per week, I received minimal activity. You altered my self-marketing strategy, helped me build my networking pipeline and . . . I found the company that would eventually offer me an executive management position a couple weeks later.

Thank you and NextJob for the excellent help...


What I valued most about the process was the Resume Builder, listening to the videos and my coach who could be a neutral party with an objective viewpoint and focused on building my confidence and motivation.


My resume is 1000% better than when I started!


I feel way more confident in job search, and in knowing what skills it takes to be successful. Between your expertise and the software I am gaining so much knowledge about how the whole job process works and how to tackle it as a whole.


I hugely appreciated the advice I received from my coach. She always put thought into my personal situation. Her emails with advice and other job options I could look at for work were so helpful.


I can’t thank my coach and the program enough. They taught me the “secrets” to finding the job that has made a huge difference in my life and future.


I can't thank you enough for all your support and encouragement in this process. You and the program provided me with some great resources and tips and really helped me to be more confident during the interview and offer process.


Thank you so very much in your assistance with my resume composition! Today I accepted a position at a local company, full of great people and possibilities! Wanted to let you know and thank you again because you did make a difference for me!


I so appreciate the help you have given to us . . . . I was so anxious to get professional help. We were actively seeking jobs for at least 3 years. I finally got a job . . . . Thank you so much!!


I have just completed my first week at my new job!!! I am thrilled to say that this job is even better than the one I was laid off from…just over two months ago. I worked diligently with my job coach to remarket myself. She was fantastic each step of the way.


I LOVE IT, I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!! I love the workshops, the software, I love my coach . . . you have been there for me so easy to get a hold of and you always get right back to me, gave me great advise, you are resourceful, and I have been telling everybody, about NextJob, my family, my friends, anyone who will listen.
