1. Focus on your strengths and abilities.
As a veteran, you have a lot to offer in the workplace: skills, discipline, teamwork, resilience and courage.
This is true even if you have a disability. Your talents, skills, passions and aspirations matter now as much as they ever did. Don’t sell yourself short! Work isn’t just about money. It’s also about getting back to civilian life, meeting people and applying the skills and experiences learned in the military. Returning to work can be part of the healing process.
