Researchers find vets leave civilian jobs quickly, but for good reasons | MilitaryTimes

Nearly half of veterans leave their first civilian job within a year, but that may not be bad news, according to a new analysis by the Center for a New American Security.

Researchers from the think tank’s Military, Veterans, and Society program found that turnover rate is comparable to civilians getting their first full-time job, and is usually the veterans’ choice.

“Most of these veterans leave their jobs for positive reasons, such as a move for more money, more responsibility or a better location,” the report states.
