Hired as an Independent Day Trader in Fort Lauderdale, FL
United States Army Reservist E-5, Human Resources
With experience as a Human Resources professional in the United States Army in addition to having owned and operated my own construction business, I came to Hire Heroes USA seeking a position in management or human resources. I am currently an Army Reservist living in Florida, and finding a job that would accommodate my Reserve service schedule was more difficult than I thought.
When I registered for services with Hire Heroes USA, I was contacted by a Veteran Transition Specialist (VTS) who helped revise my resume. My original resume was barely a job history, but my VTS was able to really dig into my background and pull out the skills and experience I needed to showcase. My VTS was tremendous. After talking him about what I was looking for, he suggested I look into career opportunities with E*Trade Financial Corporation.
In January 2015, I was offered a position as an Independent Day Trader with E*Trade and accepted. My VTS and I still communicate other often. He continues to provide advice and share his knowledge and expertise, even though I successfully found employment. His guidance has made a significant impact on my quality of life and he is a true leader in every sense of the word. Since working with Hire Heroes USA to secure employment, I’m beyond comfortable in my position and very satisfied with the services I received.
