As always, I've got half an eye looking 5 or 10 years into the future, and I was wondering how Officers leaving at the Capt/junior Maj level found the transition to civvy employment. How easy was it to secure said employment? Were your skills regarded as valuable? Did they enable you to compete with civilian managers of a similiar age and experience? I'm aiming my question more at 'Teeth' Officers, rather than REME, RE or Sigs Officers who (presumably) can enter into industry more easily. I realise the job market changes, etc. etc. but I'm just trying to get a feel for it beyond the recruiters "firms will be falling over themselves to offer you Â£100k a year to drink brews" attitude. The reason I'm asking at this early stage is really just so I can put my (and my fathers!) minds at rest a bit, and perhaps identify if there are any steps I can take to make sure I come out employable. For example, an OU masters has been touted, and I understand some military courses count as credit for an OU MBA. I've no intention of compromising my commitment to my men or my job, but I don't want to inadvertantly short change myself through ignorance.
