Jason was working as a police officer after serving in the Marine Corps for 10 years. He wanted to make a career change, but wasn’t sure how.
Prior to registering with Hire Heroes USA, Jason was working as a police officer after serving in the Marine Corps for 10 years. He was looking to make a switch to emergency management but felt stuck in the beginning stages of his job search. “I had lots of great communication and leadership experience, but I had zero ideas on how to sell my training and experience to the corporate sector,” Jason said. “I was very disorganized in my job search and my self-presentation. This lead to a lot of fruitless effort that surely would have lead to burnout and me being deeply discouraged if I kept going it alone.”
Jason’s Hire Heroes USA Transition Specialist developed a resume that translated his military experience and specialized skills. He says, “Her [Transition Specialist] knowledge of resume writing and applicant tracking systems helped me to understand the resume and application game in depth. This lead to a focused and efficient job hunt effort.” In April, Jason accepted an Emergency Management Specialist position with Yale New Haven Health. “When I felt lost or overwhelmed, Hire Heroes USA had just what I needed. They provide the guidance, knowledge, and mentorship crucial to an effective job hunt.”
