Transition Tips: Be patient

Are you in the FBI or the Intel Community, and need some advice about transitioning to the private sector? We’re here to help! In our series FBI Transition Tips our members share the lessons they’ve learned along the way.

This tip comes from Stefania Fieramosca, who advises us to give ourselves some grace:

“Be patient when you are trying to decide if leaving the government is the right move for you at this time. Take the time to think about why you are leaving and what you are looking for.

Be patient when looking for a new opportunity. Look for the right opportunity for you right now. It doesn’t have to be your forever job, just your next job for where you are at right now.

Be patient with yourself when you leave the government and go through the decompression phase. You will miss something from your government life, it doesn’t mean you made a mistake. Focus on progress not perfection.”
