The entire process of searching for a civilian job can be overwhelming, but if you treat it like another mission, you'll be fine. Determine your objective, break down the process into multiple steps, and execute the plan.
We highly suggest attending a Transition Assistance Program (TAP). TAP was created to give employment and training information to armed forces members within 180 days of separation or retirement. TAP offers workshops cover career exploration, job search strategies, as well as resume, cover letter and interview preparation.
