We recently welcomed four Hiring Our Heroes fellows. They will be joining us for 12 weeks as part of the Corporate Fellowship Program, which helps transitioning service members with their move into the private sector through internships with participating companies. Today we’d like to profile one of those fellows: Megan Missick, who has served in the Army for 11 years as a Human Resources Specialist. Megan started her fellowship with RIMTECH on August 23, as she plans her transition into the civilian workforce.
“To give myself the most opportunities throughout this transition, I found the Hiring our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program. When I interviewed with Sara Kinney, CEO of Rim Technologies, I felt that Sara was genuinely interested in helping me with this new chapter of my life and would give me the chance to explore what I want to do with my life,” Megan said. “At this very moment, I’m interested in Career Coaching/Placement and Recruiting, incorporated in the Human Resources World.”
Megan has a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Oklahoma and is currently pursuing her Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification. She has extensive experience in the field as a result of her time in the Army. Megan decided to pursue a career in the civilian workforce in part because of the birth of her son Gabriel, now two.
“Gabriel is absolutely the light of my life! I spend a majority of my free time trying to teach him new things and answering, “what is that?” every 5 minutes,” Megan said.
