Transitioned from the military to the semiconductor industry

This opportunity that was given to me goes so far beyond employment. This opportunity was implemental in restoring confidence, self, worth, being part of a team, and feeling like a professional again.

These are things I thought I had lost when I made the transition from Military to Civilian life. The community at Retronix Semiconductor is the best I have ever experienced in a Civilian workplace. The sense of friendship, family, and work-life balance is above and beyond what I ever could have imagined.
