Transition Tips: Do your homework

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 is our last post of 2023 (whoa!), but we can’t wait to catch up with you in the New Year!

This tip comes from Stephanie Kreizenbeck, who suggests we do our homework:

“You’ll likely be thinking about taking a private sector job for some time prior to actually applying for a position. It was helpful for me to take some of that time to connect with former colleagues who had already transitioned into a private sector role for some informational interviews. Even though it felt uncomfortable at first, I pushed myself to ask for practical experience and advice about company culture, the interview process, maintaining a clearance, salary and benefits negotiations, and what they would do differently if they were to do it again. Every conversation made me feel more confident that I had something great to offer and more prepared for what to expect when I found the right opportunity.”
