Have you attended a job fair for veterans? It's a little like going to a flea market. You never know exactly what you're going to find there, but every once in a while there is a diamond hidden amongst the out-of-style clothing and used shoes. So, if you do take the time to attend a job fair, go prepared! If you'd like my 5 step plan to win at a job fair, send me a private message.

Are you a veteran who has invested in a franchise? If so, I'd like to speak with you.

If you're a military veteran you can get a free one-year membership in LinkedIn. Send me a personal message if you'd like the instructions.

Hi Lee,

I attended a TAP class in 2008 when I separated from the Air Force.  I think your expectations are right on target.  However, I wouldn't expect too much information on improving impressions of people as I don't remember that being part of the program.  

Transition into civilian life threw me for a loop after 9 years of service, and I'd be happy to discuss with you if you'd like.

Next week I'm attending the Executive Transition Assistance Program at Barksdale AFB, LA.  If you've attended a TAP in transition, what did you get out of it? Did you bring a list of questions? What was your overall impression of the TAP? 

During this "conference" hope to learn:

  • How to translate military jargon for civilians
  • How to structure a Federal Resume
  • What resources are available to help veterans start and run their own business
  • Ways to improve the impression people get during an interview, including dress, appearance, and voice

Are these expectations too high? I'll let you know.

Let's grow our group! Invite a vet to join us!

Last night Congress repealed the budget decision to cut the cost of living adjustment for working age military veterans. This would have reduced retirement benefits for those who had already served faithfully and honorably by thousands of dollars. Yes, our nation needs to make tough choices to reduce the deficit, but we shouldn't single out veterans as the primary tax payers! http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/t/story/senate-clear-bill-ending-mil...

Happy New Year to all Veterans and their families! Have you written your goals for 2014? Honestly, I'm still working on mine as I chart my 48 Days course for the year. I'll retire from the Air Force in June, plan on spending the summer with family and friends in Vermont, then relocating to our home in Las Vegas. I've been thrilled with the response of friends and acquaintances on LinkedIn and Twitter on my announcement, and hope to provide lessons learned from my own transition to you on this site.

Finally have my computer going again just in time.  I want to take this opportunity to tell all of you THANK YOU for your SERVICE AND SACRIFICE for me and our country.  I posted when I first joined this group that I never served in any branch but I have a heart for the military and families.  I enjoy reading what you all post. 

In some way may you be honored tomorrow and always.  I pray that there will be jobs available to you, the needed health care and your families will be blessed.  Keep posting all of you to keep "us" aware of how we can support you.  Again....THANK YOU!  and Happy Veterans Day to you!
