Review for FourBlock Foundation Inc, New York, NY, USA
FourBlock is quite possibly the best transition program. I love that they approach transition as a journey and spend months with veterans, rather than a quick day-long workshop or retreat. Resumes and interviews are probably the least addressed topics (though important!). Rather, they address much deeper, foundational questions such as our personal priorities, our professional goals, etc. I love that they teach professional development topics that are VERY relevant to today's landscape, like emotional intelligence and strategies. Their method is much more methodical than a "passion"-based approach. I won't spill their secrets here, but basically FourBlock veterans are taught to craft their careers through reflection and strategy, rather than simply pursue their dreams.
