The RecruitMilitary VetTen List

February 2011

We are pleased once again to bring you a selection of 10 career opportunities available from organizations that are eager to employ veterans, train and educate veterans, and set veterans up in business. Those organizations are eager to recruit veterans because they understand the special attributes that veterans bring to the table, including initiative, self-discipline, leadership, and a great work ethic.
ICDC College
Along those lines, it follows that you should emphasize your own initiative, self-discipline, leadership, and work ethic in your resume and interviews and in your emails and conversations related to your job search — and that you should be prepared to relate those characteristics to your military experience. Train yourself to be able to cite, at a moment’s notice, at least one instance in which you exhibited each characteristic during your military career. Write out a “mini-speech” for each and memorize it. Say it over and over until you become confident that you could recite it smoothly during a very important interview.
Be sure to visit our new job board at More than 260,000 jobs are posted there. And the number of job seekers registered at the site will hit 350,000 by the middle of the month, with an average of more than 300 coming aboard daily. This means that there is plenty of competition for the posted jobs!
We welcome more questions for Chad Sowash’s column, “Ask Chad about Careers,” in our Search & Employ® magazine. For details, open the PDF of the current issue by clicking on the link below, and then go to Chad’s column.
As always, thank you for your service to our nation and for being a part of the RecruitMilitary community.

WSI, the world’s #1 marketing franchise, is launching an “Investing in America” Program, an initiative aimed to give back to the community and help re-build the US economy after the recession. Through this program, WSI will be offering U.S-based military veterans the opportunity to invest in a WSI marketing franchise for a significantly discounted fee with the mandate that they “pay it forward” by giving back to their local communities through various charitable acts.
All franchise owners in the Investing in America Program will have 5 years to complete the task of providing charitable acts in the total value of $25,000, which is equivalent to the initial 50% discount they received on the franchisee fee. Through the “pay it forward” component of the program, WSI hopes that not only will the U.S economy experience growth and success with the opening of additional, useful marketing offices, but that local communities around the country will actually benefit through charitable acts delivered by our “Investing in America’ owners.
All eligible, U.S based military veterans are invited to apply for the program.

Our new column, “Ask Chad About Careers,” in our print and online magazine, Search & Employ®, has been a great success. Chad Sowash, a former Infantry Drill Sergeant in the Army, answers veterans’ questions about employment, educational, and business opportunities. We invite you to submit your own questions for Chad to answer. We are after questions that apply to your own situation and are specific in nature, but do not refer to a specific company or employment office. Here’s an example of a usable question: “I am a tank gunner in the Marine Corps, and I will be getting out in six months. I would like to get a civilian job working outdoors on heavy equipment. Any suggestions?’ We would not use your name, but would identify you generally–for example, “An Army veteran in Nebraska wants to know…” Please send your question to Katie Becker, the Editor of Search & Employ, at As always, thank you for your service to our nation and for being a part of the RecruitMilitary community.
