Hired as a Physical Security Specialist
United States Army E-9, Military Police
I had several challenges when I transitioned from 30 years of Army service; the first was building my resume. The Army’s Transition Assistance Program showed me how to draft a resume, but did not have the time or manpower help me improve my draft. While I consider myself a very competent writer, my draft resume was nowhere near the executive level of the resume that Hire Heroes USA helped prepare for me.
Hire Heroes USA was instrumental in assisting me find employment. My Veteran Transition Specialist showed me how best to manage online job searches, and found suitable leads to get me started. Even though I did not secure the first couple of employment leads provided, going through the process was invaluable. I was also able to prepare for upcoming interviews with a Hire Heroes USA volunteer mock interviewer. Working with this organization boosted my confidence at every level.
My Hire Heroes USA Veteran Transition Specialist acted as a mentor, confidant and employment professional that was absolutely dedicated to assisting me throughout this process. I owe him more than he could ever imagine. His efforts, advice and general conversation regarding employment provided sound perspective that I could trust and relate to, and it steered me on the correct course, ultimately helping me secure very good employment.
