VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. December 22, 2016 – Navy SEALs and U.S. Special Operations forces have powerful life skills that can be highly valuable when translated into the business world, Atlantic Diving Supply President Karan Rai recently told a group of SEALs and Special Forces members transitioning to civilian careers.
“The question becomes: How do you deploy those skills in business?” Rai said.
Rai’s comments came as part of a commencement speech he delivered to 21 graduates of The Honor Foundation—a career transition institute created exclusively to help SEALs and special ops make career transitions. Atlantic Diving Supply partnered with the San Diego-based foundation, that now offers its courses in Virginia Beach, to support their mission. As part of that partnership, Jen Edwards, Atlantic Diving Supply Vice President of Human Resources, has become actively involved with the foundation by teaching a course designed to help with the transition to the civilian sector that has become an integral part of their curriculum.
Skills like resume writing and interviewing can be learned, Rai told the group.
