#4401 This book is a guide for U.S. military veterans seeking employment after discharge. It provides information about the civilian workforce, rubrics for navigating ones career, and a list of essential resources to consult during the job search.
Also included are sections dedicated specifically to suggestions and resources available to female veterans.
Weiss explains that hiring managers and human resources directors hire veterans who make the effort to build a professional relationship. He discusses the importance of meeting employers at venues such as job fairs, trade shows, office parks, and even Starbucks.
Other advice he gives includes:
- Establish an operations center (home office) for job hunting
- Don’t be afraid to make cold calls
- Dress appropriately for job interviews and practice communicating in civilian-speak, not military jargon
- Target military-friendly companies that value the skills of returning military personnel
