When you transition to a new career after the military, you may face two types of interviews: technical and behavioral. With technical interviews, you will likely be asked questions that are specific to the role you applied for. In a behavioral interview, an employer is trying to get a clear sense of your character.
One way to stay fresh in the minds of potential employers is to follow up with them after an interview. There are several ways you can do this in order to stay in touch with them, and also leave an impression that lasts long after your interview has ended.
