The military mind set and the civilian mind set are not compatible. They are two different worlds. A career in the military is not the same at all as pursuing a career in the civilian world. Plus, the benefits, rewards and opportunities for advancement are not comparable. Finding the right veteran to take a position at a company involves more that fitting a person with the proper qualifications and experience with a job he or she can do. There are several other critical factors to consider and evaluate. – This is the purpose of HirePatriots’ one-of-a-kind, innovative Military Veteran Career Transition Program or MVCTP.


This comprehensive program is the brainchild of Marine Mustang, Cesar Nader. A “Mustang” is an officer that began as a Private and then worked himself up through the ranks to become an officer. Cesar spent 10 years as an enlisted Marine. He served two combat tours; and, he became a Gunnery Sergeant before being commissioned as Marine 2nd Lieutenant, Logistics Professional. He retired as Captain, with almost 21 years of honorable service. 

In 2011, when it was time for Cesar to transition, he spent two years working on his plan of action. He conducted over 200 phone screenings, and more than 40 job interviews. He had 11 job offers on the table before retiring from the Marine Corps. All that effort taught Cesar how to effectively market himself to employers, in the private, public, government, non-profit, and overseas sectors. He knew that he had to share this information with those veterans following him out of the military.
