In my role as President of the NJ ACFE Chapter I’m always asked, “Is it hard to make the transition from Government to the Private Sector?” That’s a tough question as it really depends on who you are and what does success look like to you? Is it job satisfaction or ‘the mission?’ Or,  is it strictly remuneration? Perhaps it’s a combination of many factors.

On Thursday, January 24th, 2019 we explored just what it takes to make a successful career transition from public to private. The ACFE NJ (Chapter 9) 2019 kicked off our meeting entitled, “Making the Transition from Government to the Private Sector.” 

And, in a departure from our usual one speaker, one subject format, this was a panel discussion incorporating healthy audience Q&A participation. With yours truly as the moderator, we had three panelists who have made successful career transitions from Local, State and Federal positions.

We heard their stories, explored the who, what, when and why of their decisions and shared their successes and obstacles.
