Never Lie In an Job Interview

As we all know, job interviews are intensely stressful occasions. If you REALLY want the job, the stakes are also incredibly high and you might feel a slight mistake could cost you the chance at landing the job. Given the pressure, some people are tempted to fudge their accomplishments and background a bit. They figure if adding a few years of experience that they'll triumph over other candidates, and what the interviewer doesn't know won't hurt…

I don't belong anywhere

This is what I told myself before I was hired at Quicken Loans!!!! I just got out of the Navy and had NO direction. I applied everywhere and no luck.No one wanted this guy. Thank god that Quicken saw that my skills in military leadership matched closely with their job of communications expert. I didn't have to change who I was and I used the experience I already had to land myself a good job. Best decision I ever made. I love companies that…

What I loved working at #DeptofVeteranAffairs

Helping, listening to War stories and just a simple hello, can I help you today? Listening, talking, problem solving and sometimes JUST a smile. A simple hello could change a thought of hopelessness. I love helping Veterans. Helping a Veteran in need is helping a Mother, wife, son or daughter through a TEMPORARY bad time. The programs are in place but why the lack of knowledge? I've known VETERANS and dependents to have benefits entitled to…

How does someone get into working for the VA ? I would love nothing more than to help a veteran

Never give up

After looking for as good job since the middle of December, I was ready to just give up. Interviewed for numerous positions and I get Well your over qualified or Sorry but we found candidates that matched better. But I kept on and finally landed a good job. The pay is ok but since I get a military pension I can work with it. So just don't give up out there. There is a job somewhere out there with your name on it.

Hi Joel McDonald so happy for you that your patience and hard work paid off! For anyone else who is told they are overqualified…
