Why are we housing foreign refugees for free but leave our vets out on the street? I am on the verge of homelessness every month. Anyone know a reliable source to find government jobs for veterans?

USA Jobs is a good source to find government jobs and there is veterans and disabled veterans preferences for many jobs listed, Linked In also is a veteran friendly job related social media site.

I searched USA jobs to death. No responses back or got emails stating the job posting had ended.

SGT Benjamin Figuried - Did anyone help you with your resume or show you how to translate your military skills to civilian equivalents. See it time and again where someone has everything the listing asks for and is to former military folks fully qualified but haven't demilitarized their resume to capture it in language the industry understands.

I did have someone that puts resumes together do mine. If I could show you somehow I could probably allow you to get a better understanding of how my resume looks and if it is where it should be.

SGT Benjamin Figuried - Shoot me a contact request, then cut and paste your resume into a message and I'll be glad to look / help. Make sure you don't have your ssn on the one you send.

By credentialed, you mean trained and certified?

SGT Benjamin Figuried - it says in your profile you have a watercraft certification by way of 88L. If you go to google and type jobs for 88L it will list jobs openings. The range was 40-70K per year.

I put mariner in the search box in USA Jobs. USA Jobs did not have many Military Sealift Command openings. There were 8. US Army Corps of engineers frequently looks for dredge and lighterage operators. I saw 2-3.

There are other options. Just search the internet for "Veteran friendly employers"...and good hunting
