After 20 years in the Navy, Sakda was ready to find a new opportunity in social work but didn’t know where to begin. “Having not done any job searching for 20 years gives you a sense of being lost and overwhelmed,” he said.
Sakda’s friend encouraged him to register with Hire Heroes USA. His Transition Specialist put his concerns about civilian employment to rest by creating a plan, providing a resume and supporting him throughout the process. Within a few weeks, Sakda had multiple interviews and took advantage of Hire Heroes USA’s mock interview services. This past June, he accepted an offer with Hope Village for Children as a Behavioral Coach. “Hire Heroes USA is a resource that you must add to your transition checklist!” he said of his experience. “I will recommend Hire Heroes USA to every service member.”
