What appealed to you about working for Sabre?

I value Sabre’s NAVAIR reputation as an outstanding support contractor in the Program Management field.  Sabre is also known to take care of employees and promote business decisions being made at the lowest organizational level.

What is your current position at Sabre?
I am a Senior Executive Director in the Mid Atlantic Region providing direct support to the Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft Program Office (PMA-290) as the Deputy Business Manager.

How has your military career helped with your current job responsiblities?
The military, as does Sabre, trains and performs in a team environment.  The success or failure to accomplish a mission often comes down to clear communication.  Having a sound understanding of the job at hand and a clear approach to accomplishing the assigned tasks is necessary to optimize performance.

Do you have any transition tips for soon to be veterans?
Identify a couple of veteran friends that can provide mentorship during the transition.  Plan for about a six month duration to allow for job interviews and selection.

 


Name:
Michael
Branch of Service: United States Navy
Years of Service: 4
Education: B.S. Education, Indiana State University; M.S. Education, Indiana State University; Ph.D. International Business, Kennedy Western University


What appealed to you about working for Sabre?
The opportunity to continue to support the Warfighter in a critical area where I could make a difference, stay engaged with a passion to provide an important service and enjoy what I am doing while working with good people.

What is your current position at Sabre?
I work as a Project Engineer in the area of Anti-Tamper with a specific emphasis on the development and support of the Program Protection Plan for various U.S. Navy programs.

How has your military career helped with your current job responsiblities?
I gained first-hand experience from a Warfighter’s perspective relying on the support team to provide the tools to get the job done on active duty.  During my service, I completed Operations Specialist A-school, EW school and Enlisted Intelligence Assistant school. This provided me the opportunity to deal with all levels of command and allowed me to understand their different goals and methods of attaining their objectives. This has been very valuable in keeping focused on the mission and understanding the various levels of management within the Department of Defense, State Department and our foreign allies.

Do you have any transition tips for soon to be veterans?
Don’t shy away or ignore programs in place to help you. You will realize later that they are very beneficial and provide a service that most people do not have access to.  You will need every bit of help and information to compete in today’s job force so take what is there and apply it the best way you can.  It is important that you go forward with a positive attitude about yourself and your service. Remember that you are not alone and that you are appreciated.
