The State of Jobs for Military Veterans

Being a member of the United States armed forces changes your life forever. It is an experience that not only gives you valuable training, but shapes your work ethic, morals, and character. As a military veteran, you have made sacrifices and dedicated a level of effort that most people cannot even comprehend, let alone accomplish.

While in the military, you were an active member of a structured, tightly knit community that was built on personal relationships. Moving into the ‘civilian’ realm, where you might not currently have many connections, finding jobs for a military veteran can pose a challenge.

Unfortunately after serving your country, many returning veterans come home to face long periods of unemployment or they accept jobs that do not recognize the valuable experience they have attained.

Although you know your military experience will make you more than qualified for most civilian roles, the Human Resources department of most companies will not forward your resume to hiring managers unless your resume exactly matches the job postings.

 

Find a Job as a Military Veteran!

The objective to any job search is a 3-step process:

-  Get your resume into the manager’s hands and hopefully to forward it to a manager who is a former veteran themselves.

-  Once the manager receives your resume, there must be follow-up to make sure the manager actually has reviewed your resume and to learn what the next step is.

-  If an interview invitation is extended, there must be another round of follow-ups to see what the outcome truly is.

Many job boards and services exist that cater to the military veteran. However, few are as effective as the most general of job boards. A site called iEmployed achieves the many objectives mentioned above.

iEmployed guarantees that your resume reaches the hiring manager and a follow-up campaign will be engaged to provide you with the feedback you need. Upon registering, you are provided with your own portal at iEmployed through which you will have access to the manager’s direct contact information. Your resume submittal will be updated with each manager’s response to your resume.
