“VETERAN JOBS ARE ATTAINABLE -
RE-BRAND YOUR SKILLS”
To get veteran jobs, re-brand your military skills to meet the needs of the business world. Through effective mentoring, make the move in starting a new career.
In my view, that is the key to success in any job change. It is especially important for you, as a veteran, to convince potential employers that you have the skills needed for the new career.

Dawn Of A New Day For Veterans
You should convince yourself that it is not a new career, just a different environment. You are using your skills just like you did in the military. Only now, the terminology is different.
You are helping yourself and others reach an objective. You may use your verbal skills, technical skills, hand / eye coordination, and management skills just as you did before. Now, you are increasing sales, building a project, saving lives, or starting an entrepreneurial venture.
As we discussed in our career change resume section, your resume is the first place in which you can begin to re-brand your skills and capabilities. By doing so you can convince the resume reader that you are a great fit for that career. It won’t matter that you are just out of the military. You can be an asset to them.
Matter of fact, this holds true for anyone, not just veterans.

How to Re-Brand
Find The Direction You Need With A Mentor

Write down in your own words how you went about accomplishing your tasks when you were in the service. What skills did you use to complete them?
Try the same thing with another task. Identify how frequently you used some skills, but try to capture all that you used.
Now, read through the job description of the potential career. Write down each skill that you feel may be needed in that job.
Which of your skills are a direct match with those of the potential career? See if you can link those skills that are not a direct match with others that are needed in the potential career.
Important! Since most of us can’t tell all the skills needed in the new career, you may want to talk to someone that is already successful in that career. Arrange to call a Mentor to get their input of skills needed. They could help you understand the jargon and terminology. This will help you communicate successfully with the interviewer
Don’t miss this chance. It may only take an hour of your time to get all you need to succeed.
