. Military-Civilian: Hot Jobs, Events, and Helpful Information for Veterans Seeking Civilian Careers: June 2014

Monday, June 30, 2014

When soldiers come together and support one another, the result is beautiful. Three soldiers in the British Army collaborated with two U.S. Soldiers in order to beautifully perform a song dedicated to troops around the world. The song ‘Coming Home’ is a message of support to all service members who are representing their country with pride.

Transitioning Conference

Transitioning Conference
Success 4 What’s Next – Conference
Opening Doors To Your Future

We aren't teaching how to get a job, we are training on why you may not be getting a job and/or why you are unfulfilled in your current position

Monday, July 14, 2014 at 8:00 AM – Friday, July 18, 2014 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel
425 Water St Portsmouth, VA 23704

Success 4 What’s Next is a company owned by veterans who are dedicated in helping American’s veterans successfully transition into the civilian sector.
We are different from transitional programs offered by the military as we not only provide information on gaining employment, we also help address the mindset challenges military members have in the transition back into the civilian world.
There is a certain conditioning in behavior and mindset taught and enforced at boot comp and service academies that’s necessary for the military culture.
However, when the member separates from the service, there is a different skillset that’s needed to operate successfully in the civilian sector.
As veterans, we are highly valuable in the civilian sector; sometimes the value is lost in the conversion from military to civilian.
Success 4 What’s Next closes a much needed gap in the mindset of going from military to civilian.

EARLY BIRD PRICING AVAILABLE UNTIL June 15th.  $397, $467 starting June 16th.

The biggest challenge for veterans is the same as millions of other people around the world, transitioning from a domestic economy to a global economy.
Education and military experience are no longer enough.
What’s the difference between you and the other 76,000 military members that leave the military each year?
In this new world, you need greater tools and a different set of personal skills to succeed.
People remember small percentages of what they see and hear, but most of what they experience.  For the first time ever, these world renowned training companies, international speakers and trainers are coming together to conduct hands on training for military personnel, designed to help distinguish you from your competition, increase your value and create a step-by-step blueprint for future success in your personal and professional life.  This is an intense conference unlike anything you have ever experienced.  Spouses are welcomed and highly encouraged to attend.
During this 5 day event, you will dig deep inside to discover the career path you truly desire and get a clear vision of the life you dreamed of.
Last day, VIP access to our Career Fair with over 100 companies including Fortune 100 and 500 companies specifically looking for highly trained and qualified veterans.

10th Annual Support Our Troops Fundraiser

Testimonial 6/24/14


Wow, it has been a while. I am not sure if you remember me or not but my name is Scott D. Mitcham. I am a Paramedic that you had helped out just about a year ago linking up with Onsite OHS. I have since been deployed to Afghanistan as well as to Kurdistan! Thank you so much for all of your help in getting me locked on with the right people. That brings me to this,.

My wife Amber has recently completed a course in Phlebotomy and is currently looking for an opening in order to start her career. She is running into some of the common road blocks that accompany just starting out and you were the first person that I thought of that might be able to help. If you would be so kind as to offer her any guidance or direction it would be fantastic. Please find her contact information listed below.

I hope that this finds you well and good and enjoying yet another wonderful sunny California day!
Very Respectfully,

Scott D., NREMT-P, Remote Paramedic

Testimonial 6/23/14 Military-Civilian Career Newsletter

Dear Lucy,

Thank you for the newsletters you send me.  In the most recent one I found out about Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation (NASC).  They develop Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or rather military drones.  They would appear to be a good fit for me given my background in defense aerospace.  I filled out a profile on their website and I am sending an unsolicited cover letter along with my resume to Gisela Mayer who is their Corporate Recruiter in Pax River, MD..

Why hiring veterans is good for business.

It is astonishing that US veterans have high unemployment rates. Although it is falling, it still remains at 9%, higher than national average of 7%. There are some speculations on why employers hesitate to hire veterans. Reasons ranging from fear of deployment to PTSD, or politics of war and stereotyping US veterans.

Since 2002, I have had the pleasure of working with more than 25 US veterans.

Based on my experiences, I discovered that veterans have a few qualities in common that are very difficult to find in others:
