McIntyre MAP Testimonial

“I was apprehensive about making the transition from the Air Force to the civilian world, but as it turned out, not for the reasons I thought.  I attended the Transition Assistance Program classes offered by the Air Force Academy early, almost 18 months before my retirement, and even completed the Moving Ahead with Purpose class offered by Homeland Security Defense Careers.  Check.  Read More…


Mandico MAP Testimonial

“As an individual who has traversed lengthy military and civilian career paths, I have been involved in career planning seminars in various formats and forums for over twenty years, in both private and public sector settings.  I can say without reservation that Kimberly Hessler’s program is the most thorough, comprehensive, and effective offering that I have ever encountered.

Patterson MAP Testimonial

“It has been my privilege to know and serve Ms. Kimberly Hessler and Homeland Security Careers, LLC (HSC). HSC has seen over 70 alumni of her training, coaching and networking teams find productive and satisfying jobs in 2010 alone – and in the difficult Colorado Springs CO labor market.

Spindler MAP Testimonial

“If it were not for my involvement in HSC, and the experiences of HSC’s preparation, application, and job seeker follow through, I would not have been qualified for my current position with the US Department of Labor assisting Disabled Veterans find employment.  Nor would I know nearly as many job seeking techniques and job contacts which has helped my current veteran clients were it not for my participation in HSC.

Peck MAP Testimonial

“After a three year mobilization away from home, to include a combat deployment, I was excited and eager to get back to my family and reengage in the job market.  With 27 years in service with the Marine Corps and past experience in the private sector, I figured, “what company wouldn’t want someone like me in their organization; all I have to do is hit the streets and sell myself.

Kloenne MAP Testimonial

“The Moving Ahead with Purpose (MAP) program is an outstanding masters level program that is an excellent follow-on to the Transition Assistance Program (TAP).  While TAP provides broad coverage of a variety of topics that are very important to transitioning military, MAP allowed me to take a deep dive into myself to not only help identify my strengths, but to find where my passion lies. Read More…


Gibson MAP Testimonial

 I am forever indebted to Kimberly Hessler and her outstanding MAP program!  After transitioning out of the Air Force following 27+ years of service, I really needed to “fine tune” what I wanted to do for Career #2.  After nearly 28 years of moving, 18 addresses and 15 PCS’es I wanted to target my next career and not just “wing it.”  The MAP course really allowed me to drill into, and discern, what was important for me, my family and identify   Read More…

Mouton MAP Testimonial

 “The Moving Ahead with Purpose program is truly phenomenal!  The MAP classes filled a gap left by the Transition Assistance Program classes that I took at the Pentagon.  The TAP classes told me that I had a large challenge ahead in transitioning to the civilian workforce, but they did not give me the tools to effectively make that transition. During the MAP sessions, Kimberly draws from her many years of experience   Read More…
