Keep Focused on your Job Plan
“The future depends on what you do today.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Is it just me or does it feel like once the weather starts getting nicer outside it becomes more difficult to focus while sitting at a computer?

Between the heat, vacation, the nice weather, and just overall summer time fun yelling our names, its hard to stay inside and search for a new job, or update our resume and LinkedIn.

Here are a few ways to stay focused this summer.
Make a Plan
Set a Timer
Get up and Move
Don't Forget Self-Care

It's okay to need a little down time this summer, just don't let that down time take over your plan and dreams for your career. If you need help staying focused and creating a career plan, reach out to your Career Specialist today.

Congratulations, Oshrei!
After being a stay-at-home mom for 5 years, Army Veteran Oshrei, found that she wasn't able to get through the hiring process. After her husband referred her to VetJobs, she connected with her employment specialist who worked one-on-one with her, aiding her in searching for and applying to positions that matched her wants and needs.

"I was looking for a job during one of the biggest crises this country has had to face in recent decades. I honestly didn't think I would be able to find a job, let alone one where I could work from home. I am forever grateful to this organization and its members for the help I received and the compassion they showed me. "

Make your Resume Speak for Itself

“Do I really need to target my resume?” 

This question is heard by our training department multiple times a day - and the answer never changes - Yes! If you are submitting a general resume or a master resume to a position that you are applying for, you are doing yourself a disservice. 

The VetJobs Training Department schedules weekly resume targeting assessments that help our candidates not only understand the reasoning behind why it’s important to target but also shows them how to target their resume to a job description of their choosing!
