Hired as a Computer Operations Analyst with Marine Hydraulics International
United States Marine Corps, E-4, Personnel Administration Clerk
The transition from the Marine Corps to the civilian world presented unique challenges. Adjusting my mannerisms and speech was the most difficult. I was used to talking a certain way and using acronyms with fellow service members, but when I transitioned out I quickly realized I couldn’t do that any more. My resume was no different. After I connected with my Veteran Transition Specialist (VTS), he showed me how to make my resume more professional and appealing to prospective employers. It was ultimately this resume that secured an interview. Having that polished resume, along with other tips and advice from my VTS, gave me the confidence I needed to impress my employer during my interview.
Finally getting a job really put me at ease. I used to struggle financially, but now I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that I can pay the bills next month. I also like that my VTS stayed in touch with me, even after I secured employment. It’s that dedication to each veteran that makes Hire Heroes USA stand out from other organizations. I can’t thank them enough for all they have done for me, and I would absolutely recommend their services to others making the transition.
