Hire Heroes USA veteran Jonathan Cote was hired by GTECH Corporation as a Network Analyst. Jonathan registered with Hire Heroes in May of 2012 and received assistance with his resume and cover letter, interview skills, and job searching.
Some words from Jonathan:
“Hire Heroes is an amazing opportunity to help you secure a position that you seek. Lauren Berman was an amazing person to work with. She made sure that I was staying on top of the job search while providing me with a polished resume and cover letter. After searching for positions through Careerbuilder.com, I felt as if my resumes were going into a black hole. I then began with a different approach. Search for a position using Careerbuilder.com, then go to the company website that is offering the position and submit my resume through their system. As soon as I started this process, the phone didn’t stop ringing and it was interview after interview. I also want to thank Lauren for taking the time to do a mock interview with me and letting me know my strengths and weaknesses, ultimately preparing me for the job interview. I appreciate Hire Heroes USA and would definitely recommend Lauren as a point of contact.”

Without Joelle DiMicele I would not be working for the State of New Jersey today. If it was not for her determination and guidance I would not have been prepared for job interviews, nor would I have had a solid resume that highlighted why I was the right candidate for the job. Through her countless hours working with me and motivating me Joelle helped me find that perfect job that matched my personality and life goals. Joelle was always enthusiastic, despite any difficulties, and also served as a mentor as I went through the difficult claims process with the VA. Joelle’s love of helping others, as well as her ability to know where to find opportunities made a huge difference in my life. Because of Joelle’s relentless love to help others, it has helped me become a successful transitioning Disabled Veteran, and I will never forget what she has done for me.

“I just wanted to let you know I was offered the staffing specialist job and I start this coming Tuesday. I honestly appreciate all the help you have given me in the past four months, you truly are a blessing. It is a very competitive market and I learned that writing a resume is just not enough anymore – you have to network and market yourself, tailor your resume and cover letter specifically to the position you are applying to, and that job searching is literally a full time job. I want to thank the Hire Heroes USA organization and specifically Megan Whitson, who has coached me the past four months and encouraged me through this challenging transition out of the military. I highly recommend the Hire Heroes USA program to all veterans transitioning out of the military!”
