I have NO time for 'veterans' who complain that they could not prepare for civilian employment. Even a recruit - binned after a week or so - is eligible for a career transition workshop (which is very good), housing workshops and access to job boards.
Although my my resettlement course was an attendance course with no formal qualification at the end, it was a massive insight into civilian logistics which served me well over the next few years.
The expectation, terminology and business environment was all helpful, and gave me an expectation of what to say and do. I've interviewed several Ex-SNCO & WO's who have no real concept of a civilian business life, and did who-knows what on their resettlement, if any at all?
The biggest critics of resettlement, in my opinion, are those who spunked it up the wall on pointless courses, or didn't bother at all, but blame the Mil establishment for not having done so.
