Job hunting in the best of circumstances is demanding and time-consuming. For veterans seeking employment after returning from deployment, it can be even more daunting as they readjust to civilian life. Fortunately, there are plenty of resources available to get you through the process, including the StaffingForce blog (we're thrilled you're here!).
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to finding a job during life after service:
- QUESTION: How do I put a resume together?
- QUESTION: How do I go about finding a job to apply for?
- QUESTION: How do I prepare for an interview?
- QUESTION: What do I do for money while unemployed and searching?
There are benefits available for veterans to take advantage of during their time of transition, but you have to do some research. To get started, ask for assistance from an employment representative at the American Job Center to find out what unemployment benefits are available to you.
Veterans possess many sought-after skills and experiences that employers look for – the ability to work under pressure, the ability to work with a team, the ability to self-start and motivate, etc. It’s all about how you advertise yourself through conversation and an effective resume.
