(because a win for one military spouse is a win for all of us)
After working with MSCCN for four months, she accepted a Learning & Development Specialist position!
Hiring Challenge: After a 11-year full-time career, I worked from home consulting in the Instructional Design field for the past 16 years while I raised my children. I just moved to a new area and desired a full-time position.
Assistance Received: A recent retiree led me to MSCCN. Ms. Jenna Weakly, my Employment Specialist, assisted me with tailoring my resume to each position for which I applied, coaching me with my responses to interview questions, and refining my search. I attended webinars on resume writing and interviewing skills. Ms. Weakly also shared links to sample cover letters and thank you notes, both of which I used.
Result of Assistance: I learned how to tailor my resume to each position I sought, using key words and matching terminology. My interview skills were enhanced, and I was more prepared for interview questions, as they were similar to the ones for which I was coached.
"I am not sure I would have gotten this position without Ms. Weakly’s help. I am grateful for this organization and would recommend it to any recently retiring veteran or spouse ready to dig in and do the hard work it takes to get a job!"
