Dan Berschinski on access to opportunity

Warrior Community Integration Symposium: Thought leaders discuss support services and initiatives in the workforce for veterans and military spouses

Education is important, but employers should be aware that not everyone has traditional credentials, says Dan Berschinski, senior consultant of enterprise strategy practice, IBM.

WorkingNation sat down with Berschinski in Atlanta at the Warrior Community Integration Symposium – an annual convening of veteran-serving organizations hosted by America’s Warrior Partnership.

As frequently noted, translating military skills to the civilian workforce is a challenge. Berschinski says, “In my opinion, every veteran who transitions from active duty to civilian life is going to face some adversity. It’s a big change to go from active duty to civilian life.”

“Serving in the military gives you this massive community that you can choose to be a part of. As I was transitioning, I knew veterans who are a year or two ahead of me and I was able to reach out to them. ‘What kind of job are you in now? What resources did you find most helpful when you were moving from active duty to civilian life?’ says Berschinski.
