One of the first mistakes veterans make is they write a resume that looks like page 1 of their military performance reports. Employers can google what an infantry job description looks like. They want page 2...how were you a rick star in that job? What did you do to put your thumbprint on the job?
Hate to say it but where I work they are trying to get people in at the lowest price they can. Matter of fact we have more people from India and Pakistan then we have vets, and maybe even whole employee pool. I only know of 2 other vets from 150 employees. A lot of the jobs were lost when they moved the assembly area down to Mexico for low cost. I do know I have been told by some Managers they like my dedication, loyalty and hard work, at which time I thank them and told them just hire more vets if you want more like me.
