Returning Veterans Get Much Needed Job Search Support
(May 9, 2012) - CareerCurve is defining job search best practices for returning veterans seeking employment. To do this they are offering two hours of no-cost career coaching that will result in a roadmap for success, a completed resume and a six-month subscription to their on-line job search resource center. This program is open to the first 50 returning veterans who register.
Career Coaching Builds Confidence for Veterans
Under the guidance of Bob Scudder, a retired Navy Captain, CareerCurve developed a job search program designed specifically to address the issues returning veterans face. Bob is a certified career coach. Based upon his own transition, he understands the true value of one-on-one, personalized career coaching. Bob shared that "One of the biggest hurdles returning veterans face in job seeking is a lack of confidence in their ability to navigate the job search process." Building confidence is the area where coaching can make the greatest impact. Bob also outlined key aspects of the search that are important to tackle: identifying and translating military skills to match the civilian marketplace, creating a resume with a value proposition and intentional networking.
Differences in military life versus civilian life can leave veterans feeling as though they speak a different language. They often report a lack of understanding in how to translate transferable skills from the military to civilian jobs. Many are also uncertain about how to approach and engage in networking.
CareerCurve's coaching program is designed to assist returning veterans in managing their job search with focus, thoughtfulness and confidence. With the guidance of a career coach, participants will organize their goals, identify skills they can use on the job, create the required marketing tools and target future employers.
Returning veteran interested in participating can register at CareerCurve.
