Professions like the medical, transportation, and construction industries all rely heavily on experience. They take considerable time to qualify their respective corps through various experience incubators like internships,fellowships, apprentices, etc. - all on the job. They learn by doing Without doing these personnel may face challenges later they cannot easily overcome when know-how matters the most. The defense acquisition profession is no different. Experience has always been a vital constituent component. This article addresses the experience catalysts that matter most to the Defense Acquisition Workforce.
