MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Military.com announced today that the Transition App, supported by Citi, now has been downloaded over 5,500 times since it was released in August 2016.
The app, sponsored by Citi, is available for free on Google Play and in the Apple App store and provides a personalized approach to the civilian transition process with an interactive checklist and notifications to alert the user of upcoming tasks and important military paperwork as far as 18 months before separation.
The app is designed for all members of the armed forces (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard), members of the National Guard and reserve components. The app also includes veteran job resources and allows the user to search jobs and upcoming job fairs as well as translate their military skills to corresponding civilian occupations.
"In just six months, our military members have embraced this technology and relied on it to guide them through their transition to civilian life," said Greg Smith, President of Military.com and retired Navy admiral, "My hope is that even more service members will take advantage of this free resource."
In addition to the app, Citi is the sponsor of the online Transition Center at Military.com. The app and desktop versions of the center are compatible so that when a user makes changes in one platform it automatically updates on the other to provide a seamless user experience across devices.
"Our collaboration on the Transition App and Transition Center at Military.com demonstrates our commitment to supporting projects that empower military personnel and veterans with the tools they need to realize their economic and professional ambitions as they transition out of the military," said Ruth Christopherson, Senior Vice President of Citi Community Development and Citi Salutes and retired Colonel of the South Dakota Air National Guard. "We are pleased to learn that the technology is resonating and that so many service members now have access to vital resources that enable positive career growth."
