Never is this statement more applicable than when it comes to finding the right people to fill critical positions,according to author and business expert Lou Adler.

Adler contends there's an easy solution to this problem: It starts by thinking backwards, and creating a road map of how top people make career decisions.
While some indicators suggest that the veteran employment situation is improving, this problem isn't going away, but instead becoming more of a challenge: According to whitehouse.gov, more than 1 million service members are projected to leave the military between 2011 and 2016.
