Many human resource professionals, talent acquisition consultants, and recruiters sometimes become enamored with military skills translators when attempting to evaluate a transitioning military professional for an open role they may be supporting. A military skills translator can be an effective tool if you’re not familiar with a military occupation code or military job title and you’re trying to determine, “Does the job the transitioning military professional held in the military match the qualifications for this open position?” However, the overuse of a military skills translator can lead you down a false trail that has you passing on top-tier military talent who could have been an excellent hire for your company.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
